Sometimes immigration results from conditions in other countries that could force people to leave, perhaps unwillingly or reluctantly. Political tension, war, and/or mistreatment of certain groups of people are among the circumstances that force people to become refugees. In this lesson students will learn about the history of the Khmer people and what brought Cambodian refugees to America. They will also learn about the laws governing these refugees and why some are now facing deportation back to their homeland. Students will study how other countries around the world address refugee issues as part of a research project.
