Syrian refugee Baraa Haj Khalaf holds her hands to her face as she reacts during a news conference with her mother Fattoum Haj Khalaf, right after arriving 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. The Justice Department faced tough questioning  as it urged a court of appeals to reinstate President Donald Trump's travel ban targeting citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries -- put on hold by the courts last week. / AFP PHOTO / Joshua LOTT        (Photo credit should read JOSHUA LOTT/AFP/Getty Images)
