*sorry for resubmitting*
Hello, I'm trying to apply for a refugee travel document (i-131) and I have a question.
I left iraq in 2007 and lived in jordan.
In jordan I applied for refugee to the US.
I'm currently in the US and have a white card (i-94) and I have a family emergency in Jordan so I need to return there for a month.
So in part6 of the application, question number 1 says : "Country from which you are a refugee or asylee".
Could someone explain the question to me.
Meaning, do I write Iraq or Jordan as the answer to that question in the application?
thank you in advance.

The question refers to the country you would need refuge from, so probably Iraq.
You may want to get some advice before you travel, especially if you do not have your green card yet, so you are fully prepared for your trip and do not put your status at risk. If money is an issue, you could always check with your resettlement agency for information and/or an agency offering immigration legal services, like some Catholic Charities, local area legal aid organizations, etc.
