DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - People from Yemen have recently begun to see long-term futures in the U.S. and are making their culture part of their businesses.
It's partly a result of the normal socio-economic evolution among first- and second-generation immigrants. But it's also driven by protracted war, poverty and famine back home.
Ibrahim Alhasbani (IH'-bruh-heem ahl-hahs-BAH'-nee) left Yemen a few years ago and now owns a cafe in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn. He shares Yemen's centuries-old coffee tradition and makes his coffee made from beans harvested on his family's farm in Yemen.
He's part of a new wave of Yemeni entrepreneurs.
Yemeni have been coming to the U.S. for more than a century, but in recent years they have been planting stronger roots, raising their profile and looking outward.
