Refugees in Iran
By: Bryan, Sofia, and James
A majority of Iranian refugees left for a better education/ jobs. Education is very important to the refugees because it leads to better job choices. The government of Iran is a theocracy, meaning their government revolved around a god. The head of state (supreme leader) is appointed rather than elected. The people of Iran do not participate much in government. Iran's GDP is 1.3 trillion and global economic rating is 171st. Through 1980- 1989, Iran was in a war with Iraq. within the same year of the war ending, the Islamic Republic of Iran formed.
Refugee Resettlement in Georgia
Some of the challenges that refugees face include……..
- going through extensive airport security protocols where they check to make sure that the refugees are the correct ppl they think they are
-going through a second protocol for the airport to get info about them they had missed the first time
- had to go through medical checks after they have been approved
- have to adjust to a new environment, a new country, and to a new language It usually takes about 1 year and 9 months before they can enter the US. Refugees can be an asset to Georgia politically for many reasons. One major reason is because many refugees want to be involved in Georgia’s government which can mean that the legislature can be more diverse which can also mean a more diverse vote.
