Hundreds of Yemeni-Americans denied visas and stranded under the travel ban now have to choose: wait with little hope for a visa or return to a warzone. Many have already returned to war in Yemen. My report from Djibouti: #travelban#yemeninterc.pt/2NmrU6s
I interviewed 14 Yemeni-American families - more than 50 people including children - and spoke to immigration lawyers, advocates, and community leaders who know hundreds more. The same feelings of shock, betrayal, and despair were echoed in every story.
