Sacramento Bee 6/26/2016 Special Investigation

Highlights:

U.S. system was unprepared for refugee influx, former Army officer says.

Critics say resettlement agencies lack oversight; they cite limited resources.

Four refugee agencies – International Rescue Committee, World Relief, Opening Doors and the Sacramento Food Bank – have resettled nearly all of the Afghan special visa holders here.

Along with culture shock, many Afghan refugees come with unrealistic expectations about cash and housing, especially since they got no cultural orientation before they arrived.

Afghans arrive here under the Special Immigrant Visa Program reserved for language translators who helped U.S. troops.
