The refugees have been offered new lives in the United States and other nations following the failure of years of negotiations to secure their return to Bhutan, which says they were illegal immigrants. The United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR, said in a press statement on Friday that 100,000 have submitted applications for the resettlement so far.
