“After fleeing violence and persecution in Iraq, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis living in Jordan face a daily threat of arrest, fines and deportation because the Jordanian government treats them as illegal immigrants rather than refugees, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today.” (But notice how mildly HRW expressed itself on the matter in comparison to its reports on countries that are critical of the US, for example. HRW even attached a PlayStation 3 to its press release to appease the king).
