In a new video released on Thursday, an Iraqi refugee family of three is shown arriving in Jordan and attempting to flee their home.
“The first thing they do is walk to the border,” a visibly upset Iraqi refugee says in the video.
“They walk into a police station.
They go into a reception center, they walk into the reception center for refugees.
They walk out into the street, they go into the neighborhood, they cross the street and they get into a car and take a bus to the airport.”
They were able to cross the border because they have “all the papers.”
The family is from Baghdad’s northern Nineveh province and is among the roughly 3,000 Iraqi refugees that Jordan is helping with the relocation process.
The family of four, ages 15 to 38, arrived at a border crossing near the Jordanian town of Mafraq on Thursday.
A few hours later, the family made it to Jordan’s southern border, according to the Jordanian News Agency (JNA).
A number of other Iraqi families, including some of the youngest of the refugees, have been able to flee Iraq’s brutal civil war, which began in 2003.
More than 8,000 people have been killed, according the United Nations, and a million refugees have fled the country.
But there are currently only a handful of countries in the world that have been willing to take in these refugees.
The United States has accepted just under 2,000 Syrian refugees since 2016, according a spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
A second spokesperson told CNN the United States will accept up to 50,000 refugees in 2017.
As of March 20, just under 12,000 of those were Iraqis.
Jordan has a population of just under 8 million.
A large portion of the country’s population lives below the poverty line.
Jordan’s government has pledged to help Syrians “resettle in Jordan,” but the U.N. refugee agency has said that “it is difficult to predict the long-term impact on Jordan’s refugee population of any particular resettlement strategy.”
Many refugees are not receiving enough money from the U:aid program, the U.:aid program has provided only $2.3 billion to Jordan over the last three years.
In the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United states, refugees receive $3.5 billion per year in U:Aid.
In 2016, more than a million Syrian refugees arrived in the United State, including 1,200 from Jordan.
But a large majority of them are Syrian Christians who are being persecuted by the Syrian government.
Some Christians who fled the conflict are in desperate need of food, water and other basic necessities.
Jordan, which hosts nearly half of the United Nation’s refugees, is home to nearly 7 million Syrian Christians, according United Nations figures.
In January, the government announced it was opening a refugee center in the Jordanian capital Amman, a move the United Christians say is part of a larger effort to assist Syrian Christians in Jordan.
