Syrians in California feel backlash as refugees face new hurdles
Access California Services, a National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) member, was featured in an article by The Orange County Register:
“They’re fleeing from war. They’re fleeing from air raids, ground artillery fire. It’s just been a constant for the last four years,” said Suhail Mulla, associate director of Access California Services, an Anaheim group that provides services for Arab Americans and other Muslim Americans. “People stay as long as they possibly can. That’s their home. Nobody wants to leave their home,” he added.
“But when the danger hits close, then people say, ‘That’s enough. We can’t do this anymore.’”
