Shatha Sulaiman Kheder, 27, wipes away a tear as she recollects her family still in refugee camps in Tukwila, Wash. on January 30, 2017. She and her husband Adil Kheder Nimr, 27, and their son Steven Adil Kheder, 10 months, from Iraq arrived in the United States on as refugees 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.
