America at War

Going from Iraq to Michigan

Listen to this Story

Two thousand Iraqi immigrants will be moving to Michigan soon, and no doubt, it will be a big change. Weekend America talks Belmin Pinjic, the director of refugee services for the Lutheran Social Services of Michigan, an organization that helps refugees settle into their new home. We'll also talk with Rafat Ita, an Iraqi that resettled in the United States in 1994 after the Persian Gulf War.
