Syrian Immigrant Responds to Immigration Executive Order


Safa Faki left Syria nearly four years ago for a better life in Sacramento, California.

However, under the new executive order banning immigration from Syria and the spread of Islamaphobia nationwide, Faki’s family is greatly concerned for her safety.

She was planning on traveling back home to continue teaching art to children in refugee camps but now she’s unable. Faki shares her reaction to the order on Insight.

She is still collecting funds for a future trip to Syria to visit family and teach more art classes to children in refugee camps.

You can listen to Safa Faki's previous appearance on Insight here.
