Immigrants seek refuge, resources in DuPage County
WHEATON – A divorced woman from Mexico. A 75-year-old accountant who lived blocks from the presidential palace of Saddam Hussein during the American invasion. A Sudanese refugee who escaped war with her husband and 9-year-old son. A Bhutanese man who spent 18 years in a United Nations tent in Nepal.
These are not just nameless and faceless people – they are residents of DuPage County.
“A lot of people don’t realize that,” Emily Grey, the executive director of World Relief DuPage, said. “Many people think that immigrants in the state are in Chicago. Really, 56 percent live in the Chicago suburbs, not in the city.”
