But this separation is physically, they are still bond together by heart. This came into light, when people started sharing photos with their apart family member to highlight the real victim of this ban.

Trump imposed travel ban on six Muslim countries. Since then, people stand for this brutal ban, and asked to abolish it as it impact on innocent people and would break families.

She said, “Grandfathers are really important, but I think it’s the grandmas that symbolise the nucleus of the family,” says Dagres. “The only thing grandmothers are really guilty of is giving too many hugs and kisses and feeding you too much. When has a senior citizen ever committed an act of terror?”

“The travel ban is absurd and unjustified on so many levels,” she argues. “This concept of ‘bona fide relationship’ is bogus. Close family doesn’t actually apply to blood ties,”.

The ban was imposed on 29 June, since than she has gained 1500 followers.
