Report: U.S. pulling back on refugee resettlement

Arthur Jemmy and his wife moved into an upstairs room at the Reformed Church of Highland Park after Newark’s Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement asked Jemmy to come in for an appointment. The 40-year-old Christian asylum-seeker from Indonesia feared ICE would deport him, just like seven of his friends ICE has already sent back to Indonesia this year, where violence and discrimination against Christians has occurred.

Pastor and Green Party candidate for governor Seth Kaper-Dale has offered sanctuary here before and also runs a resettlement program for asylum-seekers.
