'Wanting to Kiss and Hold Her Son One Last Time,' Public Pressure Wins Yemeni Mother Waiver to Trump's Cruel Muslim Ban

Common Dreams staff

Shaima Swileh, a Yemeni mother who the United States government had denied entry on the basis of the Trump administration's controversial Muslim ban, has finally won a temporary visa to visit her dying two-year-old son, Abdullah Hassan, who has been on life support for over a month in an Oakland, California hospital with his father.

Depressing and sad on every level.

The world will remember the Hate inspired policy of Trump and his Republican enablers for a long time.


#4

Better to just remember it instead of continuing to live with it.


#5

Strange “family values” coming out of this rightwing administration. Shaima Swileh, I cannot find adequate words of comfort for you and your husband. I can only stand in the Mystery with you both.

If she was a muslim from Saudi Arabia she’d be on the first plane out. First class of course.

" The Muslim ban prohibits U.S. travel from nationals of Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen"

Them North Korean and Venezuelan Muslims must be really upset about this :smiley:

So instead of depending on the SCOTUS for justice – we instead rely on CNN now?
