Who are Refugees?
Refugees are individuals who have had to flee their country due to a fear of persecution or death based on ethnicity, religion, political views, or social status. Most of the refugees arriving in Charlotte come from refugee camps, but some have entered the U.S. on their own and have been granted asylum.
