The Yemeni mother of a dying boy in California is being prevented from seeing him due to a US ban on visitors from her country, the family says.

Two-year-old Abdullah Hassan was born with a brain disease that doctors say he will not survive.

They have submitted a waiver but obviously time is of the evidence. If Trump has even a shred of compassion he will order the IMMEDIATE approval of the waiver. That’s a big “if”, I know.

I suspect Trump will not do much here for this family, he is getting too much mileage from his base with this travel ban.
