United States 'bans Yemen mum from visiting dying toddler in California'

United States 'bans Yemen mum from visiting dying toddler in California'

So Hassan left for the United States without his wife to get treatment for Abdullah at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland.

Abdullah Hassan, the boy who is now receiving care at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland, suffers from a rare degenerative brain disease and does not have much time left to live. I would let her see him.

Doctors have told Hassan that patients like his son are usually on life support for two or three weeks, or at maximum, a month.

"All she wishes is to hold his hand for the last time", the boy's father, Ali Hassan, 22, told the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday.

The State Department has not commented on Abdullah Hassan's case.

Mr Hassan met his wife in the Arab nation, and the couple had seven children there.

Abdullah's father was born in California, but has maintained close ties with his family's native Yemen.

Cyrus, Ronson and Lennon released a cover of "Happy Xmas (War is Over)" on Thursday night in preparation for the big show. Back in 2013, she went braless for the Cosmopolitan Cover, in which she referred Liam as "hubby".


It's a race against the clock for Ali Hassan, who is trying desperately to get his wife to the U.S.to say a final goodbye to their son. The parents are ready to take Abdullah off life support and end his suffering but they want his mother Shaima Swileh, a Yemeni national to visit the USA who wishes to hold his hand for the last time and say goodbye to her dying son.

They're now urging authorities to grant her a waiver.

Hassan said he hopes his family will be reunited before it's too late.

A Yemeni mother who was denied entry to the USA under a controversial travel ban has been granted a visa and a travel waiver, the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) told CBS News.

Sadly, with no support from the U.S. State Department, this already grieving mother may not be given the opportunity to see her dying son one last time.

"The loss of a child is something no parent should experience, but not being able to be there in your child's last moments is unfathomably cruel", Sweilem said in a statement provided by CAIR.

A divided supreme court in June upheld the ban, which it said was within the president's powers.
