Description
 
Massive refugee migrations in Southeast Asia, set off in 1975 by changes of government in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, were a problem of both humanitarian and political concern to the U.S. The refugees posed potentially disruptive political problems for first-asylum countries in Southeast Asia and challenged the ability of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to deal effectively with the problem. Only a few countries accepted an appreciable number of refugees for resettlement. After the evacuation from Vietnam in April 1975, over $1 billion was made available by the U.S., or was pending approval by the Congress, to help the refugees. This 1979 report describes (1) the nature and growth of the Indochinese refugee problem and (2) how the refugee problem was being addressed by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the countries of first asylum in Southeast Asia, the U.S., and other nations. It describes the programs for selecting and processing refugees for admission to the U.S. and for resettling them in American communities. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
