I am a civil servant. My work as a Family Engagement coordinator at a small refugee center with a mission directed at educating and integrating refugees into the US school system is both personally and altruistically rewarding. I had a meeting to enroll a Syrian family into an inner city school this morning, and the routine gathering and discussion became a battle between cultures, full of mistrust and anxiety.
“Do you work for Trump? Is that why you are trying to make this enrollment so confusing? I hope we get kicked out of this country so we can go back to Jordan!”
