Hmong Immigration
Fresno County leaders met on Tuesday to prepare for the challenge of meeting the needs of thousands of new Hmong immigrants.
About 15,000 refugees are headed to the United States, including about 3,000 who will relocate to Fresno County. At least 900 are children.

A special taskforce Tuesday presented four major challenges to the Fresno County Board of Supervisors. They include meeting the health, employment, housing, and education needs of the refugees.

The county health department is also setting up a refugee health screening clinic, and the Fresno Unified School District plans on setting up a center to help with student enrollment.
