Iraqi refugee released from JFK calls America ‘the land of freedom’


On Friday evening, Hameed Khalid Darweesh was among the many refugees and immigrants whose travel plans were abruptly interrupted when President Donald Trump signed his executive order on immigration.

The order blocks the entry of Syrian refugees into the United States indefinitely; blocks entry for all refugees for 120 days; and puts a 90-day block on entry into the United States for citizens from the predominantly-Muslim countries Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
