As Congress considers tightening up the vetting process for refugees potentially headed for the U.S., we present a set of guidelines compiled by the New York-based International Rescue Committee (IFC) that sheds light on the typical process refugees undergo.
The guidelines give a step-by-step overview of the refugee processing.
The IFC was founded in 1937 at the request of Albert Einstein, according to its website. It is managed by a Board of Directors and Overseers that includes people such as former U.S. Sec. of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and former Secs. of State Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright.
