President Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigration and travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries devastated many families.

On Friday night, a federal judge temporarily blocked the president’s order, which allowed those who were stuck in Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen to finally come home. Now, some families are finally getting to feel the embrace of their loved ones.
