Iraqi Woman Requests Assylum

ABCNews7:

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- A woman escaped from the grits of ISIS terrorist in the Middle East and is making a plea to the United States to be her permanent home. In a story you'll only see on ABC7 News, we get an inside look as she explains how ISIS is making life unbearable for Christians in her country.

Because the woman's husband is still living in Iraq, we will protect her identity and call her Shoshan.

Shoshan made her case before an asylum officer in San Francisco Monday morning.

Members of the Bay Area religious community are standing up to ISIS, the militant Islamic group that has terrorized Christians in Iraq and Syria.

Church members are sending relief supplies and are also helping refugees to seek asylum.

Shoshan is an expecting mother and is among the estimated quarter-million Christians facing persecution in Iraq at the hands of ISIS militants.

We MUST grant her Assylum and if her husband can be found bring the whole family.

The US needs to take a portion of these refugees.
