More than 1350 Palestinians are arriving in the US as part of a re-settlement process aimed at emptying the no-man's land desert camps in which Palestinians have been languishing since the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. This workshop seeks to discuss the reasons for Palestinian expulsion from Iraq, their conditions in the desert camps, and the work of national and local bodies in the US to help re-settle the arriving Palestinians.
