100-Year-Old Refugee From Bhutan Just Became a U.S. Citizen
Gobin Rai, a refugee from Bhutan, just became an American citizen at 100 years old. Rai fled from his home country after violence broke out, and he lived in a refugee camp in Nepal for 20 years. He made the journey to St. Louis, Missouri, and is now fulfilling a lifelong goal of becoming a U.S. citizen. "I want to tell all my people that this country, America, is a great country. There is no other country better than this in the world," Rai told his translator.
