Lebanon's government is enforcing new rules to limit the flow of Syrian refugees into the country, as the United Nations now registers about 3,000 a day.
Yet many of the Syrians in Lebanon are not looking for assistance. Rather, they believe refugee status is a ticket to Europe or the United States.
While 780,000 Syrians have registered with the UN, there are actually about 1.3 million in the country.
The government is now imposing stricter rules at its border crossings to prevent any increase in refugee numbers.
