Shatha Sulaiman Kheder, 27, (left) and her husband Adil Kheder Nimr, 27, recollect their journey to America as refugees from Iraq from their new apartment in Tukwila, Wash. January 30, 2017. The family, including their son Steven Adil Kheder, 10 months, arrived in the United States as refugees from Iraq on January 19, 2017, the day after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. They are concerned about thirteen of their family members still in Iraq. Trump signed an executive order last Friday restricting immigration from seven Muslim countries, suspending all refugee admission for 120 days, and bans all Syrian refugees indefinitely.
