Syrian refugee Baraa Haj Khalaf, (C), shares a laugh with her brother Mohamad (back) and her husband Abdulmajeed as they greet people during their arrival at O’Hare International Airport on February 7, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.
Baraa Haj Khalaf and her family were previously banned from entering the United States after President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning immigrants from entering the country.
