Syrian refugees in US face asylum delays

Months after their tourist visas expired, refugees say they are witnessing delays and uncertainty over their future.

    Of those that have made it there, many are facing uncertainty about getting asylum, despite a pledge from the Obama administration to ease immigration rules for them.
