Syrian refugee in Chicago

Syrian refugee in Chicago

Since the civil war began in Syria four years ago, more than 4 million people have fled that country as refugees. Hundreds of thousands of them are seeking asylum in Europe, many starting the journey with dangerous boat trips from the Turkish coast to Greece. Meanwhile, a small number of Syrian refugees have been granted asylum here in the United States. We spoke with one such refugee about what her life was like before the civil war began, and how it changed. Fatima Idris is a mother-of-two who came to Chicago with her husband and sons earlier this year.
