I cant belive they would say that to me. We have to leave
Civil war had been spreading in Fatima's home country of Somalia. One night Fatima heard explosions and awoke to bombings in her town and she had to leave. She couldn't find her family in time so she left and followed her neighbors on foot to Kenyan.
I thought we were safe here....
By the time Fatima was 16 she was pregnant with her first child and was still in Kenyan. And she still hadn't heard from her family.
Don't worry we will get you feeling better soon
By the time Fatima was 18 she had 2 daughters and her parents have reached out to her and threatened to find her kill her because she had 2 kids without being married so Her and her daughters fled Kenyan to Thialand
I cant belive we cant go to the USA yet.
Once they got to Thailand they stayed in an apartment but they found out that a ton of Somali women lived their and knew their story and hated them . They called her children horrible names and one day the Thai police came and arrested Fatima and her children for being "Illegal" immigrants. The women knew the police were coming but they didn't tell Fatima.
The stayed in the horrible conditions of the detention camp for a year until one of Fatima's daughters became severely ill. Because the health of Fatima's daughter the UNHCR cleared them for resettlement in the USA, where they could get her daughter medical help.
Then the travel ban came into play and they couldn't get to the USA. Luckily the travel ban didn't last long and they left after it was gone.
