ABSTRACT
The article reports on the status of 9,500 Burmese refugees whose resettlement to the U.S. was postponed indefinitely, as of May 2006. The refugees are members of a Christian minority in Burma who are suspected of providing material support to a rebel army, the Karen National Union. For more than 40 years, this army has been fighting Burma's Buddhist-friendly military regime, which, according to Operation World, is seeking to marginalize or even eliminate Christianity.
