OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Two-year-old Abdullah Hassan died Friday at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland following public outcry when his Yemeni mother could not get a visa to see him, leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Friday.

The hospitalization of 2-year-old Abdullah Hassan and the U.S. ban on travel from some mostly-Muslim countries, including Yemen, kept his mother Shaima Swileh from seeing her son until CAIR and a law firm filed an emergency lawsuit.

Abdullah’s father Ali Hassan brought him to the U.S. months ago to get medical care for a degenerative brain condition that kept worsening. The boy and father are U.S. citizens.

A funeral will be held Saturday, Dec. 29 at the California Islamic Center in Lodi.

  1. No one talks about the fact that loser countries such as Yemen are such worthless shaitholes that they cannot even afford bandages and therefore have to waste our precious resources to take care of their sick citizens.
