Iraqi Refugees in Jordan
Abdul Aziz family fled from Iraq to Amman, Jordan, after insurgents kidnapped their son Fahed in Ramadi and threatened to rape their daughters. Fahed is still missing. Fahed's oldest brother worked as a translator for American military which insurgents viewed as U.S. collaboration. After the family registered with UNHCR office, they learned that the State Department does not resettle refugees from Iraq.
In Jordan, Iraqis are not allowed to work and Iraqi children aren't allowed to attend public schools. Most Iraqis are not able to afford to pay for private schools. Jordan gives Iraqis a three month visa, and after that time they have to pay a penalty for every day they stay in the country.
