I want to see my family in Lebanon or Qatar or Egypt and no one from those countries accept travel documents there is no way to see my family without renewing my Syrian passport and I’m wanted in my country but there’s a new law in Syria says that I can renew my passport even if I’m wanted
If I renew my passport is this can make a problem for me and my family when we want to apply for us citizenship?
Thanks & Regards
You should wait to travel until you can do so on a U.S. passport.

I would not renew a passport from Syria if that is the country I was claiming asylum from. If one does that, it’s considered availing yourself of the laws of that country and runs counter to a prospective asylee’s supposed fear of persecution.

Consider yourself lucky to be in the US and do NOT renew your Syrian passport ... wait until you are a US citizen.
Yes, I know you probably don't "want" to wait so long before visiting family ... but in this political climate ... especially with the US government being 'anti-Syrian' ... I wouldn't do it.
One reason is that the US government can take away your approved asylum ... it is NOT a permanent approval.
