Portland(US): Physicians say a 4-month-old Iranian girl with a rare heart condition who was affected by President Donald Trump’s travel ban is “out of the woods” and making good progress after her life-saving surgery.
Fatemeh Reshad and her parents’ plans to enter the United States with a travel visa for the infant’s surgery were canceled last month after Trump’s executive order on immigration and refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries, including Iran.
The girl and her parents arrived in Portland a few days later after being granted a waiver the same day Trump’s ban was temporarily blocked by a federal judge.
Reshad’s physicians at Oregon Health Sciences University’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital said Monday her surgery Friday was more complicated considering the procedure is usually performed on younger patients, so her recovery may take some time. (AP)
