Iraqis In Chicago Talk About Justice

Worldview spoke with a number of Iraqi-Americans living in the Chicago area. They told us what justice in Iraq means to them. First, we hear from Laith al-Saud, a lecturer at Harld Washington College and Robert DeKelaita, an immigration lawyer who defends Iraqis seeking refugee status in the United States.  

Worldview producer Becky Vlamis also visited a few Iraqi-owned stores in Chicago's Albany Park neighborhood. She spoke to several residents and shopkeepers about moving beyond conflict and administering justice in Iraq.
