Now I'm writing about one character that is Muslim but lives in America. How would things change from living in a place like Iraq where a majority of people practice the same things you do to America where everyone is different? Another question is would my character be able to immigrate from Iraq in 1982 to America? I've done so much research but nothing really tells me about Iraq's view about those leaving the country for America though I do know that Saddam Hussein's cousin was president during that time and he was said to have been a stern but kind president. I know my character would have to wait a while before being granted permission into the States and would have to pass a citizenship test. I just want to write this perfectly without offending anyone...though the plot line just might offend a lot more people than my character.
