OAKLAND, California (19459017) The latest news on the death of a boy whose Yemeni mother fought Trump's travel ban for the Trump government (all local times):
Members of the Islamic community in central California gather in a mosque to complain about the death of a boy whose Yemeni mother fought a ban on the Trump Administration's ban in the United States the day after his death at a children's hospital after months of treating a brain degenerative disease.
As part of the Muslim tradition, a body must be buried within 72 hours of death. The child should be laid to rest after the service.
Abdullah's mother, Shaima Swileh, spent more than a year battling for travel to see her son. An attorney group successfully sued and came to the United States just over a week before her son's death.
The two-year-old son of a Yemeni woman who charged The Trump government to let her into the country to be with the sick boy died.
The Council for American-Islamic Relations announced Friday that Abdullah Hassan had died in a hospital in Oakland. He was suffering from a genetic brain condition.
The boy's father brought him to the United States for medical treatment in October. His mother Shaima Swileh stayed behind in her Egyptian home. The boy and his father are US citizens, but Swileh is not.
Yemeni nationals are prohibited from entering the United States under the ban of President Donald Trump. She applied for a waiver in 2017, but US officials did not grant her until December, after the Council had sued her.
Swileh held her son in hospital for the first time on December 19th.
