Refugee programs struggle under increasing demand

The Salt Lake Tribune looked at the federal resettlement system that provides financial and social support for refugees relocating in Utah and throughout the U.S.  The Tribune found the system quickly abandons refugees soon after their arrival.  People coming from poor African nations and some parts of Asia, particularly those who have lived for a generation or more in refugee camps, are most vulnerable.  Many live in abject poverty in America with little hope for a better life.
