"I'm Steve she'd take us we'll get back to the world in just a moment. But first some headlines and some breaking news that we're watching today it came without warning today and from a tweet by the commander in chief Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says he's resigning and the announcement comes just a day after President Donald Trump overruled his advice against pulling troops out of Syria. It also comes after the president pressed forward on discussions to withdraw forces from Afghanistan. David welna covers national security for NPR. I think that if you look at Madison's resignation letter he's a bit elliptical about things. But he does say, and I'm quoting now, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively in the world without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to those allies. He seems to be referring to to a certain degree of allies. That's NPR's David welna, whom we will hear from later. This hour on KCRW Mattis, perhaps is the most respected foreign policy official in the administration. He'll leave by the end of February. After a couple of tumultuous years struggling to soften even moderate the president's hard line, sometimes sharply changing policy. So you'll hear more about that coming up later on in the hour on this program. A woman from Yemen who fought for the right to see her dying. Son has arrived in the bay area shaima sway law looked overwhelmed as her family greeted her at San Francisco airport last night. This is difficult time for our family. We are blessed to be together.

"Service sport and business to come. It's fourteen minutes past the hour. But now to the US where family of a two year old Yemeni boy in California who is terminally ill say that. His Yemeni mother is being prevented from entering the country to visit her son for one last time due to the so-called travel ban. Brought in by the current administration on people from seven mainly Muslim countries. Who was born with a brain disease cannot survive for much longer. Doctors say that his family have argued that he must urgently see his mother the boy's father who was born in California brought him to the US expecting his mother would later. Join them both the boy and the father are American citizens. The case has being picked up by the council on American Islamic relations, civil rights attorney working for them is sad swim. The father Ali Hassan is a United States, then he's citizen for ten years. His son Dr citizenship from his father, the mother shaimaa is a Yemeni national. She's in Cairo Egypt right now. She's been unable to obtain a visa to come to the US because of Donald Trump's Muslim ban. And the only way she would be able to come in. She gets that bad. Right. So there has to be a waiver. What is the process for that? And how long does it take have? They applied for that. Yes. They've applied for the waiver. They've been waiting now. For over a year the way it works is there's turn criteria that people must meet, and they go case by case in determining whether or not someone gets a waiver are numbers show that only two percent of those who apply for a waiver our grandson. This would seem to be a highly deserving case not wishing to take particularly a judge's position on it. But I can't imagine any extenuating circumstances that will be more serious than this. This is a case it ain't gonna be granted a waiver. You really have to ask yourself how legitimate this waiver process truly is. And whether or not, you know, it was something that was thrown in there just for the purposes of testing judicial scrutiny or whether or not legitimate process that will have people's out waivers. Granted that is quite an important point. But let's talk a bit about the side case. Poor little boy, Abdullah is is to roughly now how long have they known that he suffered from this life threatening. Condition. Abdullah actually just turned to two days ago. They've known since his birth that there was something wrong. He was having seizures and having some health issues, but they've gotten progressively worse. So they went to Cairo initially hoping they can obtain some better better medical care there before they made their way here to the US right now, Bob Dole is on life. Support is unable to breathe on his own. The doctors have indicated that they're doing their best to try to maintain his body and his organs, so he can survive as long as possible without suffering on life support with the hopes that his mother can make it out here. But it's not looking good. When you put this to the immigration authorities. Do they take the conditions into account to they say we will expedite it? Why is it taking so long? So, you know, before we been involved representing the family the family had doctors sending letters from the hospital to the embassy expressly explaining that, Abdullah wasn't his last days. And that his mother needed to be there soon if she's going to have any hopes of seeing him touching him kissing her little baby ever again. And, you know, even in response to those letters to these really heartbreaking ladders. They just have really generic responses about well. Okay. We're really sorry to hear that her her application is being processed. You know, we've asked for an expedited waiver expedited of the waiver process formerly and we've asked for something called humanitarian parole. So we're we're working towards a few avenues that we hope while bring shame my hair to be with her baby. The father the mother what are they saying to you when you speak to them? You know, they're just really heartbroken his mother'd does not stop crying. I mean, I don't know how else to put it. It's really it's really heartbreaking. She says, you know, when I let Optima goats the United States. I wasn't saying goodbye. She didn't know that. This was going to happen. The thought was that when she let him go in October shoes letting them go so he could be in a better situation. So that he can receive medical treatment he needs. And instead they've put her in this position Renault mother should be where she almost feels like she's abandoned her her son and not by choice, but by the United States policy, and it's really heartbreaking civil rights attorney Saad Swail moves from the council on American Islamic relations, picking up the case of Abdullah Hassan.
