Barriers to legal residency
"Although, we are in safety we are not happy because we want to go home. I have this feeling that something is lacking inside of me,” Mona says. “My children have lost their hopes of returning to Syria. We hear of safe areas but rumors say that people have occupied other people’s homes. How will we go back to a country that is not safe?” Mona questions herself. “I hope that my children and their generation will see better days than what we are experiencing today. During my whole life time I never saw what I have seen now. Hopefully this is just a phase in life that will be erased from our memories,” she concludes.
