A four-month-old Iranian girl, scheduled to fly into Portland for a heart surgery appointment at OHSU had to postpone the procedure after Drumpf’s immigration order.
The infant, Fatemah, has a heart condition. Her family found out about it at a routine checkup, and her pediatricians say she needs to have surgery soon.
“They said ‘this is a miracle, we don’t know how she had lived with the big problem she had.’ Immediately she has to do the surgery,” her uncle, Samad Taghizadeh , told KATU News.
Taghizadeh lives in Portland with Fatemah’s grandparents; they are American citizens. The family chose to have the open-heart surgery at Oregon Health & Science University – which boasts one of the top pediatric cardiology programs in the U.S. – because facilities in Iran do not have the equipment necessary for such a procedure.
Donald Trump is the first president-elect ever known to go on a nationwide victory tour, which kicks off this week in a key swing state that helped the real estate mogul pull off his surprise victory.
The Republican is scheduled to be at U.S. Bank Arena at 7 p.m. Thursday for a campaign-like rally. Vice President-elect Mike Pence is scheduled to attend the kickoff of what the Trump campaign is calling the “USA Thank You Tour.”

(Look it up!)
Political experts aren’t surprised Trump is taking a victory lap before his inauguration on Jan. 20, nor that he’s launching the tour in Ohio.
