Refugees From New Jersey

More Kosovar Albanian refugees left Fort Dix in New Jersey today for host families across the country. Many of the 600 or so remaining refugees are torn between a desire to stay in the US and wanting to return home. The younger Kosovars see opportunities in America while the older generation is anxious to go back and rebuild their lives. NPR's Eric Westervelt reports from Fort Dix.
