Dr. Suha Abushamma, the Cleveland Clinic physician who was banned from the U.S. under President Trump’s immigration executive order, has returned to Cleveland.
Abushamma returned to the U.S. Monday. She spoke to media and some of her fellow doctors during a news conference at the Intercontinental Hotel Tuesday afternoon. She also thanked the team of lawyers that helped her return to Cleveland.
“Let me start by saying how happy I am to be back here in Cleveland with my friends, my fiance and all the people I consider part of my family,” Abushamma said during the news conference. “I missed them so much.”
