doctor deported

There's an old saying that goes, 'The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry'. TSA and Homeland Security's plans to embarrass and humiliate the president of the United States have gone awry.

To protect Americans from terror attacks, President Trump signed an executive order on Friday, banning refugees traveling from 7 terror-linked countries into the U.S.

The executive order bans refugees from Iran, Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Sudan and Yemen for 120 days.

In order to embarrass the president, Homeland Security and TSA agents caused chaos and mass confusion at airports by detaining and deporting legal residents of the U.S. and people holding work visas.

On Saturday, the incompetents at the TSA deported a Cleveland Clinic doctor who was returning to the U.S. from Saudi Arabia, where she was vacationing.

Dr. Suha Abushamma, who is a citizen of Sudan was detained in New York upon landing at JFK airport.

In a phone interview with Cleveland.com, she said her work visa was renewed at a U.S. Embassy this week and she flew to the U.S. early Saturday.

After she arrived in New York, she was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials who held her for about 10 hours in a room with about two dozen others. She said there was a drinking fountain in the room but no food. She said the detainees were forbidden from using cellphones but she was able to hide her cellphone in her bag.

By about 8:30 p.m., she said she was put on a plane back to Saudi Arabia. "I had a good long cry when I went on the plane," Abushamma said. "It's the first time I cried all day."

Dr. Abushamma, 26, was deported Saturday night, just minutes before a federal judge issued a temporary stay of Trump's executive order. The federal stay temporarily blocked deportations of visa holders and green card holders who arrived in the U.S.

Abushamma, an internal medicine resident, worked at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio since July. She was in the country on a work visa. Abushamma said she traveled from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia one day after Trump signed the executive order banning travel to the U.S. by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.

Unfortunately, Abushamma, who is a citizen of Sudan, was unaware of Trump's executive order before she departed for Saudi Arabia.

She said in phone interviews from New York and later on a plane that she was supposed to be in the Middle East for three weeks but cut the trip short after hearing of Trump's executive order.

A lawyer with the ACLU is working to renew the doctor's work visa again. It is unclear when or if she will be allowed to return to the U.S.

    Yeah, that's what it was Sandra. ?? You must have put in your research because you were scared as hell yesterday.

  • deadellamore

    Is this a fact or alternative fact? Trump is embarrassing himself. I seriously doubt he needs any help.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    So Trump went from protecting the country to protecting American citizens? ? looks like someones finally figured out what side their bread is butter on. ? Time for me to go renew my passport and gain citizenship overseas. I don't want to be here when the yt folks lose their minds.

  • Rayne

    Sandra you ain't going on vacation today?

  • Tammie Reed

    This was so sad, I read this yesterday. I used to work at the Cleveland Clinic too, lots of GREAT doctors there! This is a total nightmare! So your education, house, car, job all down the drain that people have worked so hard to acquire! Smh!

    Thank you. I read that as TSA and Homeland Security acted independently as to embarrass him. They were following an Executive order.

  • dontgetblocked

    Oh well. Work in the Sudan or Saudi Arabia. I know a lot of black Americans who would like to become doctors but they can't find funding. Maybe this will open up money for Americans...disenfranchised black Americans. She's doing well. Taking vacations to Saudi Arabia and all. I agree with President Trump. Why are all these people flying back and forth all the time? I can understand visiting family but all these vacations. The War on Terrorism is still active and these are war regulations created to keep America safe. President Trump is doing everything I wanted. He's building a wall, making national security a priority and destroying Obamacare. Good work.

  • klwbaby

    Yeah it's the TSA and homeland security that's embarrassing Trump. So the vague language of the order has nothing to do with this confusion. I feel a better saying is "the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing"..

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    I think it's an ALTERNATIVE FACT because according to CNN sources :
    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY read Exe Order concluded it did not apply to Green Card holders. WHITE HOUSE overruled them.
    This is just the beginning.

  • Mel

    This is truly disgusting was Russia in that list? I think not because he have putin nuts in his mouth. You can't judge people based upon their religion or where they from. Not everyone is a terrorist I truly believe a lot of these folks travel over here to make a better life for themselves. What about the man from Iraq who was working with the US military he sold everything gave up everything only to get held up on an airport him and his fam. He will have to go back to Iraq where now these ppl know his face and his fam life will most likely be in danger. Oh Trump don't know what he started

  • dontgetblocked

    Furthermore, the only people who need to worry are the folks from the seven banned countries. This is nothing new. There are all sorts of economic bans in place against certain countries. I find it funny that the ACLU rushed to defend the Muslims...even sprawled out on the airport floor. Blacks could have used a little help when we were target practice for the police. I guess black lives really don't matter.

    It's sad but some people are going to fall through the cracks due to lack of preparation on everybody involved. They knew this was coming. Trump has been saying he was going to do this for at least a year. People didn't want to believe it was going to happen so we as a nation weren't fully prepared. Hopefully her situation gets resolved.

    ———————
    Sandra, please. The confusion came from a lack of clarity and communication from Trump's adminstration. Trump should have made the aforementioned organizations aware of this order long before he signed it into effect. TSA didn't even know which countries were affected by this ban until hours after the order was signed. The only embarrassment here is Trump himself. He is one of the most incompetent Presidents we've had since Bush, and he is a complete embarrassment to this country. The fact that you stan so hard for someone so blatantly stupid is frankly disgusting.

    There is not one city in this country where a large influx of immigrants has benefitted blacks, fact. Where is this community where it's been good? Less jobs which creates more social dysfunction. Immigrants treat blacks as bad or worst than whites, fact. There is no black Hispanic, South Asian, Muslim coalition fighting whitey as your black leaders would like for you to believe. They only work with blacks when it directly benefits them. They want to be white and keep blacks at the bottom.

    Clinton was going to let in ten to twenty more Million ILLEGALS. Thank God Trump won!

    If this were an executive to send all black Americans back to Africa, every middle eastern, Asian, Hispanic, and yes white liberals would be at the airport cheering. Bunch of hypocrites don't care one bit about the oppression of black Americans.

He has misplaced his trust and should suffer the insult as this cabal of imbeciles unwittingly play with fire.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Okay

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I somewhat agree with you. My question is ......why no one stated these things when bush jr was president. It really make me wonder. Is it really about him being president or is it all coming from the hate our race have in their hearts for this man. I'm no fan of Trump's it it saddens me with all the effort people put behind this man to destroy him. I wish someone would have been that way with bush. Maybe we wouldn't be going through this now. Maybe those people wouldn't have had to suffer during hurricane Katrina. I just feel all this fuss is about the wrong person. They should have felt like this about bush

  • God is working on me!

    What's embarrassing are these comments honestly.

  • Concerned

    In all fairness the first announcement said all people coming in from those countries would be banned. It didn't specify any other T&Cs. I understand the confusion a bit.

  • Li

    WE, the US are short of doctors. Period. Whenever I go to the ER, I am always waited on by Middle Eastern doctors and they are the best IMO.

  • Dreadboi

    You can thank every president before trump for allowing the enemy in with the thousands of "muslim refugees"who posed as being in distress and needing to escape. Most refugess dont assimilate into the communities and force they way of life unto the host community..
    Second their are tons of americans to do tech jobs but when you can undercut wages by bringing in others from outside you do that. Its not right but what happens.. Modern day slavery and discrimination..

  • KB

    THEY SHOULD HAVE to be blunt and to the point. Outside of the obvious points with Trump, the Bushes didn't put their facism on full display for all to see 24/7 during their campaigns and after. Trumps blantant disrespect and disdain for people not like him is disgusting. The people saw the Bushes for what they were after they got in office. But you see it did take Bush Jr being in office for the people to TRULY see. I guess people thought the mistakes of the father shouldn't fall on the son. At any rate I'm in total agreement with Hmmmm~? & you.

    He didn't slip through he was welcomed with open arms. For those that supported his views and voted for him are going to see a domino effect like no other and it's going to affect the USA in more worse ways than we have experienced before. This is just the beginning but people have to experience the repercussions of their actions first hand. I'm going to sound like my 82 y.o. Grandma here, "but this is nothing new for black people EVERYTHING that's been going on and what is coming. We've been suffering, it's those that feel entitled and had their secrets behind closed doors all these years that you should be watching for . Those people are going to lose their damn minds."

    The RNC will allow Trump to make just enough radical changes to create quite the controversy and panic amongst the people.

    Trump never followed any sort of procedure so that officials, airport/airline staff, allied Nations, or traveling immigrants would know what the expectations are. There was zero fore thought and that is why there is chaos. We are hearing from friends that it is a ball of confusion in the airport for Permanent residents regardless of country of origin. We have an Africa trip we just cancelled because two of the men going, both nurses, are afraid they won't be let back in.

    A doctor. I hate to be callous but her country could use her. Unless she sends a portion of her pay home. There are so many stories of countries sending their students here and the student doesnt go home and fulfil their obligation.
    A dr at 26. Now they put up every roadblock so regular americans cant study medicine but we allow a foreign dr. There is heavy cheating abroad but they get spots before citizens, why, because their tutition is more.

  • http://www.thatlittlesoutherngirl.com/ That Little Southern Girl

    An intern has to complete 3-5 years practicing under a physician after medical school before they are allowed to practice on their own. That is the stage she is in. As an intern, she cannot go back to her country and practice before completing her residency. Also, as an intern, her pay is drastically smaller than what you probably assume it is. Whether there is cheating abroad or not, I cannot attest to, but if she is able to get into medical school, pass her boards, practice under an attending for the required amount of years, and maintain her license, she deserves just as much of an opportunity as a "regular American" to pursue her chosen career.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Foreign medical students have to go through the ECFMG, under the NAME, in order to even do a residency in the states. They don't just come here and go into a medical establishment, without completing AND PASSING Stephen 1 of this, which is an 4-6 hour written exam. Residents make about 75-85K a year, no where near what a Board certified physician would make. One of the reasons they do come here is to learn up to date techniques and many, although not all, do go home to practice.

    As for tuition, most foreign countries don't have tuition, their students typically have no student loan to pay. America creates its own roadblocks.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    You might want to do a little research before saying "regular Americans" are blocked from studying medicine. Research the many grants that are available (not offered or even advertised) and see if you don't find a way to make it happen. Many of the foreign people have the will, desire and tenacity to overcome the seeming roadblocks whereas many "lazy Americans" just complain.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    So why not applaud that?! Maybe even emulate her level of determination and apply it to whatever you want to do. I was focused by 26, but I had a wife and 2 children. Had no choice. But I'm not a Dr. either.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    "In order to embarrass the president..."

    He did that himself by not being clear about the Executive Order he hurriedly tried to put in place. TSA Agents need their jobs too and probably followed the "higher ups" interpretation of the order

  • Op2

    The US are short of doctors "deliberately" due to politics. I've seen students with at least a 30 on the MCATS (older test scale) and GPAs higher than a 3.6 and the whole nine-yards of recommendations, volunteering and certified work), being turned away with claims of their just not being enough medical school seats.

    Why? Because it is political and deliberately designed to keep the class numbers or seats low and give this false illusion of it being so hard to find students who want to become physicians in order to justify the the need for a higher pay scale with doctors. Most MDs and DO's avoid the low paying primary care positions and focus on specializing in order to pay off their hefty student loan-debt and to finance a lifestyle while providing for their wife and family.

    -With so many DO's and MDs waiting to fill the fill primary care positions, there are no excuses.

    -in other countries, engineering and pre-med students are allowed to start taking their College Liberal Arts & Sciences in the 10th Grade. By the 11th and 12th Grade they are able to move to their local colleges and fulfill their upper-level engineering or pre-med science courses for their Bachelor's Degree. This allows them to be more advanced that US students and score well on the MCAT for med school or the DAT for Dental School, which also shaves off the unnecessary time and $$$ that US colleges are designed to eat up to make profit at the expense of leaving students with a debt.

    -a young Albanian got accepted into our Med School and just bossed the game or rose to the top of class. Why? Because she told us that those didactic classes were just repeated courses for her. -goes to show how much drawn out BS or politics is carved into our schools and colleges. If other countries can do it, the so can the US.

  • Op2

    People in her country needs her medical help WAY more than the Americans.

    I call BS. Save the tears because we know the game. -coming to the US was never really about helping Americans than it is about helping oneself. Otherwise, why ignore her own country full of people who are in dire need of medical services?

  • Op2

    I've seen most of the get their anchor-babies and have no plans of living in their native country again.

    That line is their well-trained hook for coming in a US Work-Visa: I want to learn up-to-date techniques, skills, etc. to go back and help my those in native country. -then, they flip the script as planned to skirt our laws and break their promise in order to remain living or working in the US. lol

  • lovelygamour

    We are talking about two different things.
    1 A lot of foreign students apply directly to usa med schools and they pay higher tuition.
    2.If you are already a dr in a lot of area's you dont have to intern- although you do have to test.
    3. If they come to the usa to intern they pay more.
    Foreign students are worth more money to the school(but the reputation takes a hit). Especially if they make them take extra credits.

  • lovelygamour

    You can intern anywhere. Ever heard of study aboard.
    Africa is short on drs because they send one and that person leaves or doesnt send back.
    I dont know her story but lets not lie like it doesnt happen.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Any and every foreign trained medical student MUST go through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Students in order to even apply for a residency. Most foreign countries have no cost for school, so they do not have a student loan.

    Those who come here to go to school, typically come on a specific VISA, which has a lot of restrictions and has to be updated and current to attend school.

    Even if you are a Doctor in another county, to get licensed by the State Board, you have to take this test unless you apply for a specific license which will be restricted and therefore you are not a fully credentialed physician and do not get the same pay.

    Yes, foreign students are a high commodity and many are better than American trained physicians.....which makes trump's ban a bigger issue, since this can prevent really good physicians from getting their VISA's in time to apply fr residencies and fellowships

  • lovelygamour

    We're all Americans but it's so hard to explain the truth to anyone that has been brainwashed to think that all their problems are caused by a group different than them. People forget history and this attitude by our new President (I respect him for being my president; however I disagree with his way of doing things) just remind us of horrible chapters of the past, including but not limited to the annihilation of Jews, homosexuals, and other people by the nazis. It all started the same exact way. People need to see beyond their own noses instead of just being seduced by cheap populism, promises that just polarize an area of the population to advance into a totalitarian agenda.

    None of these two women are Iranians. What is the real nationality of these two? They are Arabs NOT Iranians, as their names suggests.

    Hi Patty. After all these months do you still feel that so many people are just putting all the {undeserving} effort behind this man to destroy him? Have you come to the realization yet that he’s the only responsible party for so much dissent and then some?

    No,no,no,no,no. I never said it was undeserving. What I saddened me was how they displayed hate for this man and he only was in office for a week. It breaks my heart they did the same to Obama. After all these years. I have come to learn that it's not about what they can do in office. It's all about race, and that's a sad commentary for this country
