A trip to the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, where Syrian refugee families are becoming part of American society. Known for having one of the largest Syrian populations in America, Allentown and the Lehigh Valley make the most authentic, mouth-watering Syrian food you'll find in the U.S. This also makes it a perfect refuge for Syrians fleeing a brutal civil war. But even in the Lehigh Valley, the fear of refugees is all too present.
