Al-Ali Basim, his 22-year-old wife and his 12-month-old daughter sported broad smiles last month as they stepped off the charter flight carrying evacuees from Iraqi-occupied Kuwait. U.S. Embassy officials there had told them they would be treated here as returning American citizens. Basim, a 26-year-old Jordanian who received his civil engineering degree at the University of Louisiana, expected to find a home, a car and possibly a job. But their smiles quickly faded.
