The Austrian government has granted asylum to four Christian refugees from Iran, but more than 100 remain stranded. The group fled persecution in Iran more than a year ago. The United States initially offered the refugees asylum under a law known as the Lautenberg Amendment only to later reject their applications without explanation. The mass denial left the group in limbo until a member of the Austrian Parliament began lobbying on the refugees’ behalf earlier this year.
