Sinjar administration officially requests the Trump administration to waive the immigration ban for Yezidis, particularly the victims of the Islamic State.
Waisi Naif, the Head of Sinjar Mayoral Council, said that the Sinjar administration is planning to present an official request to the Trump administration to exclude Yezidis from the entry ban.
The official also called on the international community to support Yezidis and facilitate their immigration to the United States especially the victims who have survived the IS atrocities.
The Yezidi survivors need rehabilitative care and treatment due to the barbaric treatment they have faced, therefore, the US entry ban will negatively affect them, he added.
US President Donald Trump has recently signed an executive order that includes a 90-day entry ban on citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries including Iraq which, according to the Yezidi officials, has affected the case of the Kurdish Yezidis who have been severely affected by the IS extremist organization's brutality.
