In case you missed it, an article published earlier this week n the Greensboro News & Record on an area Montagnard family and the challenges they face - good journalism illustrating the complexity of the U.S. immigration program.
Guilford County has one of the largest populations of Montagnards outside of Vietnam. Montagnards are a grouping of ethnic populations from the highlands of Vietnam that fought alongside the U.S. army during the Vietnam war. They were one of the first groups of refugees to come to the Guilford County area over 30 years ago.
Estimates range from 15,000-30,000 for the total population in the Guilford County area. But we do not know exact numbers.
That is why completing the 2020 Census is so important. A HUGE thank you to Montagnard American Organization, Montagnard Dega Association and all of the folks who have been working on this issue within the Montagnard community for years!
They have put together 2020 Census information in some of the Montagnard dialects. #Census2020 #Getcounted
