A four-year -old Somali girl, trapped in Uganda for days, now reunited with her mother.

A Yemeni man, reunited with his father, after having his visa cancelled only days earlier by immigration officials. U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive order blocked their entry for 90 days as he called for “extreme vetting” to be put in place from seven Muslim-majority countries.

That order has been overturned because of a case brought by a Sudanese doctor working at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Suha Abushamma who was stranded in Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Gadalla Nahla lives in Virginia and was coordinating new projects in Sudan and didn’t know whether her green card would allow her back home.

In this case, Dr. Gadalla’s husband Ali, their son Mohammed and daughter Judy were reunited. But many other immigrant families from the seven impacted countries remain oceans apart.

Though some travelers have rushed in, others are holding back on booking flights for fear of only a temporary reprieve. The Trump administration is appealing the case, which legal experts said may go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
