Refugees in Arkansas

According to the Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration Office of Admissions, No Syrian refugees have been approved for relocation in Arkansas. Frank Head Jr. is the director of the only refugee processing center located in Springdale, Arkansas. He believes that it will be a long time before any resettlement begins, however the Catholic Charities Immigration Services located in Little Rock, Arkansas is preparing and so are we here at the Danna Young Law Firm.

An Immigrant and a Refugee are similar but different. A refugee is a person who is unable or unwilling to return to his or her home country because of a “well-founded fear of persecution” due to race, membership in a particular social group, political opinion, religion, or national origin.

Refugees move to a new country because they have nowhere else to go. They are fleeing persecution and fear for their lives. They must prove that they have been persecuted or have a well-founded fear of persecution based on their race, religion, political affiliation, and other factors. Immigrants relocate to a new country because they want to, and have approval, from the government that is receiving them. They are people who can return to their countries without fear.

The protection of refugees has many aspects. These include safety from being returned to the dangers they have fled; access to asylum procedures that are fair and efficient; and measures to ensure that their basic human rights are respected to allow them to live in dignity and safety while helping them to find a longer-term solution. States bear the primary responsibility for this protection.
