Refugees are Coming to America!

“Nearly four centuries after the Mayflower set sail, the world is still full of pilgrims – men and women who want nothing more than the chance for a safer, better future for themselves and their families,” Obama said.
It is expected more than 10,000 people arrive to United States. Although majority of them are from Syria but there will be many refugees from Afghanistan and Iran among these new comers.
Majority of refuges are children. Any of them need medical attention and all are frightened; some have witness worst that can happen and some have been tortured and even shot at.
