Stories shared by immigrants in the United States about their lived experiences 


May 2, 2018

Dr. Debbie Almontaser came to the United States from Yemen at the age of three, meeting her father and experiencing snow, both for the first time. On April 25, 2018, she sat in the Supreme Court, listening to oral arguments on a policy that bans people who, like her, were born in Yemen, along with five other majority Muslim countries, from entering the same country that welcomed her as a child. In her story, Debbie explores the ban's impact on Yemeni-Americans and why she is determined to remain optimistic.
