Meatpacking Town Refugees-27

Columbus Junction, Iowa Mayor Dan Wilson speaks during an informational city council meeting on rental housing codes, in Columbus Junction, Iowa on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. "We've had a lot of experience with Hispanic cultures, but for all of us, the Burmese thing is new. There's no one around that is an expert in that area or knows the language or this and that. That whole transition has been interesting," said Wilson, a businessman who grew up on a farm outside town. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)
