Much has been said about the plight of the Kosovar Albanian refugees. But where do they go? Countries around the world are taking these refugees, including the United States. Originally, U.S.-bound Kosovars were to be taken to the sweltering, inhospitable Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba. Instead, they are being taken to Fort Dix in New Jersey. We will take a look at the course of events that take place when refugees reach the United States.

Guest:

  • Nick Rizzo, Refugee Program Director, Amnesty International.
