What responsibility do you think the U.S. has to the Hmong refugee
community and Hmong veterans?
The U.S. has a moral obligation to assist and support the Hmong refugee
community, particularly those who were involved with the U.S. during the
Vietnam War. Many Hmong people served as allies and fought alongside
American forces, for which as a result, they faced persecution and retaliation.
It is a humanitarian obligation of U.S to give refugee to them. The U.S. has a
responsibility to support the resettlement and integration of Hmong refugees
who sought asylum in the United States. This includes access to education,
healthcare, and opportunities for economic advancement. Additionally, the
veterans who fought alongside the U.S. forces also deserve support, respect,
gratitude and recognition. This also includes addressing issues related to
their service, health and well-being. The U.S. should engage in advocacy and
representation for Hmong veterans, both domestically and internationally.
This includes efforts to address any remaining challenges or injustices they
may face. The U.S. has a responsibility rooted in both humanitarian
principles and gratitude for the contributions of the Hmong community,
including refugees and veterans. Recognizing and fulfilling these
responsibilities contributes to fostering a just and inclusive society.
