Iranian Fariba Tajrostami was embraced by her brothers Sunday at John F. Kennedy International Airport after arriving on her flight from Istanbul, Turkey. Tajrostami had tried to fly a week earlier but was turned away in Istanbul and sent back to Tehran, due to President Donald Trump's travel ban. When she heard a court had blocked the ban, she bought the first ticket she could to New York. She plans to join her husband, who moved from Iran last year and now has permanent residency, in Dallas.
