Curious City

Investigation timeline: What role does the city play in resettling refugees?


Curious City is a news-gathering experiment designed to satisfy the public's curiosity. People submit questionsvote for their favorites, and WBEZ reports out the winning questions in real time, on FacebookTwitter and the timeline above.  

This round's winner is Lowell Wyse from Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood. His question is: "Does city government actively participate in resettling international refugees, and does it designate certain neighborhoods for this purpose?" WBEZ North Side Bureau reporter Odette Yousef covers a lot of immigrant issues and knows the many communities of Rogers Park well. She'll be taking on this story in the coming weeks.
