Hi Andrea B.:
Francie Diep

Francie, do you have any information on reports coming out of other countries about problems these other countries have been facing with their refugee populations? I’ve seen some video documentation of violence and read reports that there has been a major culture clash. It would appear that the violence against women is a real threat in places like Belgium and Sweden, for example. I’m just not sure if these are primarily isolated incidents or a bigger problem that could happen in America? If certain cultures do not respect women (if they consider stoning, beating, and raping natural consequences for certain acts or behaviors) how do we ensure their transition to a culture that does not condone and engage in that?
