The Yemeni mother of a dying toddler in California has been granted a waiver to travel to the US to visit her son, officials say.

Shaima Swileh, who currently lives in Egypt, was prevented initially from entering the US due to the Trump administration's travel ban.
===========================================
The Trump government caved under pressure from Islamic support groups.

It seems that good news doesn't get people too excited.

To quote myself from the original thread:

I don’t know if Trump had anything to do with it (probably not since we would have heard so) but the State Departmet DID approve the waiver so kudos for that. It will still have a sad ending but at least we aren’t making it worse.
