She escaped domestic assault, poverty, street crime, and a husband mixed up with a drug cartel. She took her five kids and ran, using every last cent she had to make the journey.
When she arrived she was cold and afraid but never without hope, even as she still battled being homeless.
Her name is Angel. And you're about to hear her story. In native English.
Because Angel's from Chicago. Angel's an American citizen, whose country has turned her into a refugee.
Not only are you about to HEAR what it's like to be homeless, you're about to BE homeless, as I take you with me while I try to make it through one winter night on the streets of Minneapolis where the temperature dropped below zero.
This is American Refugee!
