PHOENIX, AZ - MARCH 01: Fidel Konezuseuge, a refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo, harvests lettuce as part of the New Roots urban farm program held by the International Rescue Committee (IRC), on March 1, 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona. The program is designed to help refugees, many of whom were farmers in their homeland, integrate into their new lives in America. New Roots, like many federally-funded programs, may be greatly cut back due to federal sequestration cuts. The IRC is a non-profit humanitarian aid organization that aids refugees and survivors of international conflict. They assist new arrivals, many of whom come from refugee camps and war zones, to adjust to American society after being granted refugee status and invited by the U.S. government to live in the United States. The IRC also assists refugees through the immigration and naturalization process to become U.S. citizens. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
