During the war in Iraq, tens of thousands of Iraqis worked with the Americans as translators, drivers, cooks and janitors. The work paid well, but it but it was dangerous; Anti-American militias sometimes killed or tortured people who worked for the Americans. Now many of these Iraqis want to come to the U.S for safety, but they’re requests are usually tied-up in red tape for years and years...sometimes until it’s too late.
