PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A lawyer for the family of an Iranian infant who was temporarily banned from coming to the United States for life-saving heart surgery says they're "overwhelmingly relieved and thrilled" the child will now be able to have the treatment.

Jennifer M. Morrissey, an attorney representing the family of Fatemeh Reshad, said she wasn't sure where the family was Saturday, but they had been expected to travel to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates for pre-clearance after a Seattle judge blocked enforcement of President Donald Trump's immigration and refugee ban.

Morrissey spoke at a news conference Saturday at Oregon Health Sciences University's Doernbecher Children's Hospital, where Reshad will be treated. She said the girl's case is "an extremely poignant example of the impact of the ban."
