Somali refugee becomes MP and now Cabinet Minister of Immigration

Many new Canadians arrive here as refugees every year.  For some, it is a continuing struggle, but for many, Canada is the land of success and dreams come true.  Ahmed Hussen arrived in Canada from Somalia and refugee camps in Kenya when he was only 16 and went on to become a lawyer, a Member of Parliament, and now, the Minister of Immigration.  This video was made when he was first elected last year, and the speaking is pretty slow and clear.

Here’s a newspaper story about his appointment as a Cabinet Minister, the person in Canada who is responsible for immigration.
