Dozens of well-wishers joined Parkat Mohamed at the airport. The anticipation was more than three years in the making. Mohamed said he wasn’t sure the reunion would happen, after President Trump suspended the admission of all refugees for 120 days.
“I’m very excited to see them today,” said Mohamed.
When Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz found out this may be the last group Catholic Charities can host in Louisville for some time, he said he wanted to be part of the welcome. “I’ve been such an admirer of the presence of refugee families within our city and they have not only been helped, they’ve helped us,” said Kurtz.
