Yearning To Be Free! 750,000 Refugees Resettled In America Since 9/11 And Not One Has Been Involved In Terrorism.

Republicans With Their Racism, Bigotry, Hate, Lies And Everything That Manifest Shamelessness Are Embarrassing Our Country In Front of The Whole World.


Let us be the America that was created at our “Birth” and developed and matured over the years, “Home of the Brave” and “Land of the Free!”



JOSEPH, an Egyptian Copt who now lives in Chicago, fled for his life when his apartment in Egypt was vandalized and his car set on fire. Three years ago he travelled to America with his family under the pretext of a business trip and applied for asylum.


His hearing at the Chicago Immigration Court, which was supposed to take place this month, has been postponed until February 2017. Joseph, who asked for his surname to remain anonymous in case he is sent back to Egypt, would like to go to university but cannot apply for financial aid as long as his case is pending; so he makes do by working as a cashier at a petrol station and as a taxi driver at night.


 His case is not unusual: some asylum-seekers in Chicago have hearings scheduled for 2020. Half of them will be turned down.
