What surprised you most about refugees living in Za’atari camp?:

The bond that they all share. From what we could see, they all got along while experiencing a horrid event like so.

What are some of the biggest issues refugees in the camp setting were facing? What about those in the urban towns and cities? How are these struggles different?:

The occasional gun fire being healed from the camp, this reminded most refugees of the wars going on back home which caused fear for their loved ones back in their home-land. These struggles make it worse for being departed from their families while still in constant worry.

Do you believe we should welcome refugees into our own communities? Why or why not?:

We should except refugees only if they pass the asylum seeker process, considering their home is under attack. This would greatly help them in a desperate time of need.

If we did welcome refugees into our communities, what are some of the needs you think they’ll have?:

Health insure, a stable living life

Main screening steps

  1. UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR,
  2. resettlement support center
  3. Biographic security checks and enhanced interagency Security check
  4. Department of home land security interview
  5. Biometric security check
  6. Medical check
  7. Cultural orientation
  8. Travel
  9. U.S. arrival

Trumps new travel ban is a 90 day entry of travelers ban from six Muslim countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The ban on all refugees to the United States is still 120 days.

I agree with the immigration order. I am with this ban because it is not long term, but it is short term to stop all distractions and put Americans first. I believe that having refugees flee to America can cause a free for all which could occur at any given moment. Terror attacks need to come to an end effectively and immediately.
