The Impact of the Muslim Ban on One Child
There is no shortage of stories about the impact of the Muslim ban on people and families.
One of the most heart-wrenching: 4-month old Fatemah Reshad had been scheduled to fly from Iran to the US for life-saving heart surgery. Her trip was originally blocked because of the ban.
The very good news: with the help of immigration attorneys, she was finally able to make the trip.
Her uncle reported yesterday that she remains in the NICU and is recovering well after undergoing surgery on February 17.

Support the International Refugee Assistance Project, which helped Fatemah's family navigate the chaos to bring her to the US for life-saving surgery.
For a little inspiration, listen to the protest speech of baby Fatemah's compatriot, Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, in absentia at the Academy Award's: "I’m sorry I’m not with you tonight. My absence is out of respect for the people of my country and those of other six nations who have been disrespected by the inhumane law that bans entry of immigrants to the US.”
