Yemen – American Fathi Alhuthaifi stands with his son Ahmed 9. His wife was denied a visa under the trump administration’s travel ban.
At the New York City mobile phone shop where he did his homework, nine-year-old ahmed alhautafiy said he missed his mother.
“Sometimes I think I’ll cry,” he said. “Trump won’t let her in.”
After years of hard work, his mother was stranded in Saudi Arabia because of President trump’s rejection of immigration and travel in some countries, including yemen. She and her four young siblings, who live with her, miss ahmed’s birthday on April 3.
Divided families: President trump’s travel ban shares American citizens abroad.

Divided families: President trump’s travel ban shares American citizens abroad.
“He wants them here, all his brothers and sisters, and he’s always been frustrated,” his father Fathi Alhuthaifi said. “I need my wife and children. We’re in a bad situation.”
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a case that challenged the ban as discriminatory and unconstitutional. Administrative law enforcement lawyers insist that the full implementation of the ban since early December is a necessary condition for national security.
Alhuthaifi is an American citizen. He moved from yemen more than 20 years ago to a successful mobile phone business on the 145th street in harlem. He named his youngest son, John McCain, after the Arizona republican senator he admired.
“As long as you’re in this country, you feel like part of the country,” he said. But the government’s travel ban undermined his dream of uniting his family in New York. All of his children have American passports, but he explained that young children can’t be without their mothers, they are not American citizens.
“We think we are very lucky, this is a fantastic country, but time has changed,” he said.
The September ban limits travel to Iran, Libya, north Korea, Syria, venezuela, somalia and yemen. Chad’s original list was deleted earlier this month.
No matter how the result of the Supreme Court, trump’s ban in the affected families across the country have sowed the mess, Michigan Syrian immigration lawyer Muna Jondy said, he provide legal consultancy services for families in the United States, their relatives are forbidden to join them now.
“My clients are scared,” she said. “This can lead to confusion about work visas and student visas and bring families here.”
Zaid Alnagi and the yemeni American merchants association in New York City offered posters for the association’s protest Tuesday.
A day before the Supreme Court hearing, the American businessmen’s association in New York held an hour of protest Tuesday. Zaid Alnagi, vice President of the association, distributed posters throughout the city and created labels for social media events #IamAmericanToo and #BodegaStrike.
“Is the core of the administrative command said, yemenis is bad, they need to stay away from, we say no, we are part of the national organization,” a citizen of the United States, najib said, he failed to put his mother to New York. Her visa was rejected this year.
President trump’s campaign promises to “completely and completely shut down muslims entering the United States” is the center of the Supreme Court debate. The President’s executive order did not cite religious beliefs, but rather raised the security of his ban.
“This is not a Muslim ban, and there has never been a ban on muslims,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the conservative immigration research center and a White House immigration adviser. He supports the strict limits of the current immigration system.
“The travel ban is aimed at specific terrorist infected countries, and in fact these countries will apply to a relatively small share of global muslims,” he said.
Critics of the ban, including a judge in Hawaii, blamed the Muslim majority on the list for the greatest burden.
“Since 1975, any national of affected countries not to cause responsible for the deaths of terrorists in the United States,” one of the 52 former national security official, Joshua Geltzer said he submitted to the Supreme Court for a friendly briefing, claims to trump the government failed to show a travel ban how to strengthen the national security.
He said the country that was banned “does not seem to have anything in common with the place where the threat of terrorism originated.”
A Syrian in Jacksonville, Florida African American cardiologist Ziad Alnabki, said: “the sad thing is a stereotype,” we can’t to label all the terrorists, and closed the door for them to enter. ”
Alnabki first came to the United States more than a decade ago, because he was a medical resident in Tennessee and graduated first in his class at Damascus university. After Syria’s brutal civil war, he applied for an immigrant visa for his parents. After years of waiting, they finally spoke to the U.S. embassy in Cairo this year.
“When their application was rejected at the beginning of the year, we were shocked that the travel ban had come and we could not bring them here.” He said.
“I love my job, which is the most meaningful thing in my life,” said Alnabki, who works in cardiology. “I take care of the patient, my son or daughter gives me a hug, but at the same time, I can’t let my parents be around me, so I can see them and they can see my child.”
Although the ban allows for individual exemptions, these exemptions are rare. About 100 exemptions were granted between December and early march, Reuters reported. During that time, more than 8,000 people applied for U.S. visas from affected countries.
A letter informing Alnabki that his parents would not get a visa also said they were not eligible for exemption.
“It’s completely arbitrary,” said Jondy, a Michigan immigration lawyer who handles the Alnabki case. “One of the doctors’ clients, his parents were in Cairo, but the other Damascus family was exempt, they were christians,” she said.
She said the few cases she dealt with had not yet shown the pattern, but she advised her Christian clients to include their religious beliefs in the application. She says those who did so have been given up.
“I’m doing something, like putting in a baptismal certificate,” she said. “This is not usually evidence that you submit in an exemption application, but it has worked.”
Jondy says she sent out hundreds of panicked phone calls and text messages begging for help. The second-generation immigrant and American citizen said the pressure was overwhelming on all concerned.
“You can’t have any arbitrary policy based on discrimination against muslims,” she said. “this is her view of the travel ban. “Basically, ‘we don’t want them here, so let’s find a way to keep them from coming here. ‘”
