World Refugee Day
Nathalie Dietrich and Silvia Arias Barber, both CLINIC Fellows in the Southeast, work with immigrants on a daily basis. Though they are always looking for ways to better serve this population, this past World Refugee Day offered a unique opportunity to also educate those unfamiliar with the experiences of immigrants in America.
Today, on World Refugee Day, I had the honor of attending a naturalization ceremony at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Thirty-six men and women who left their homes and sought protection in the United States took the oath of allegiance and waved American flags as they were proclaimed citizens of the United States of America.
