Horror: Badly burned Iraqi boy’s surgery cancelled due to Trump travel ban
Memo to Donald John Trump: actions have consequences. Heckuva job.
Two-year-old Dilbreen’s urgently-needed surgery at Boston’s Shriners Hospital for Children has been canceled for now because of President Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigrant travel from seven countries for 90 days.
The order is keeping the toddler separated from his parents, who are stuck in their Iraqi refugee camp.
“He’s in urgent need of surgery to prevent him from losing vision,” said Sally Becker, who heads up the U.K.-based humanitarian aid group Road to Peace. “The problem is, Dilbreen can’t go through surgery without his Mom. He’s already been suffering from separation anxiety after four months without her.”
