‘I’m with Catholic Community Services. We are one of the largest social services agencies in Utah. Every year, we bring six hundred refugees from all over the world to start a new life. We’ve helped thousands of refugees over the years to resettle here in Utah. These are individuals who are fleeing persecution and are finding peace and love and caring here in Utah. There are over twenty million refugees throughout the world in refugee camps and the United States takes about 70,000 in every year. Utah itself takes in about 1,200. We need people who can help these people to restart their lives. They have culture and heritages to preserve and when they come here, they are welcome…they become part of the fabric of America…they become Utahns.’
