The curtailed picture of refugee resettlement in Utah and the U.S.

Today on the show a look at refugee resettlement in Utah in 2019.

The numbers of refugees being resettled here has shrunk significantly as the Trump Administration has sought to restrict immigration. That’s happened as the world experiences what may be its worst-yet refugee crisis. We’ll hear about the work being done by refugee resettlement agencies in the state today, about the data on refugees globally, and about a unique program that aims to help refugees in Utah succeed as culinary entrepreneurs.

Guests:
Aden Batar, Director of Refugee Resettlement with Catholic Community Services.
Kate Idzorek, Program Manager for the International Rescue Committee’s Spice Kitchen Incubator
Saadiyah Hassan, a refugee chef who runs Ashikat Kitchen through Spice Kitchen
