IRAP on NBC: Iraqi-Americans Worry for Families Left Behind

IRAP’s Director Becca Heller was featured in a recent NBC News article regarding the recent surge of sectarian violence in Iraq. The piece discusses the current violence and takes the perspective of Iraqis already in the United States, who are worried for the family they left behind. More than 1 million Iraqis have already been displaced over the past few weeks, with more expected to flee in the future.

The NBC article is accompanied by a video that tells the story of the large Iraqi population in El Cajon, California, a suburb of San Diego often called “Little Baghdad.”
