Speaker: Lutheran Immigration Services

Community services programs has been around 30 years under various names. This helps refugees resettle into jobs around Nebraska. 

The average time refugees spend time in camps waiting to immigrate on average is   17 years. The reintegration from dependency and waiting, lack of upper level education, and poor sanitation in the camps to productive people in an average of 90 days in Federal funded programs.

LFS is privately funded and able to work with people much longer. LFS expects to work with over 500 immigrants this year. 

Burma refugees is the largest population. Estimated at about 5,000 in Omaha. This population is very self sufficient. This group is broken into ethnic groups. 

Butan, Samalia, Iraqs and in the future, Serian. The statistics will be out later this year. 

About 70,000 immigrants are allowed in the US this year. US takes the most refugees.
