Ragaa Thabet laughs as she helps her son Mena Thomas, 8, speak Egyptian to relatives on the phone Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017, in their York, Pa., home. Thabet applied five times for the lottery to immigrate from Egypt. When she was approved, she was pregnant with Mena. "When I win, I don't know if I'm happy or confused or stressed, but I want to go and I want to try," Thabet said of the lottery process. About 60 Egyptian Coptic Christian families have moved to York County, Pa., in recent years to escape religious persecution in Egypt, where Copts face systematic discrimination and experience attacks by Islamic extremists.
