Through the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program, the conservative state of Nebraska has long become the new home for innocent victims of terrorism, civil war, rape, attempted murder and persecution. But the Trump administration’s policies have fueled a growing hatred of Muslims and refugees, and in 2019, the U.S. resettled the lowest number of refugees since the program began in 1980. A Home Called Nebraska shines a heartwarming spotlight on the antidote to this racist nationalism: A community of people in Nebraska who work to dispel fear, build bridges and give an old-fashioned Midwestern welcome to newcomers.
