WASHINGTON - After a federal judge temporarily suspended the president's executive order limiting travel from certain majority-Muslim countries, two Yemeni brothers reunited with their father at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C.

Lawyers for the two say they were forced to sign a form that voluntarily withdrew their applications for admission, and their visas were canceled. Officials then deported them to Africa.

Their father, who earlier came to the United States, said he is thankful his boys could finally arrive.

"Thank you for every single person [who] tried to help me bring my kids back," Aquel Aziz says. "I'm so happy. I'm so glad. This is America. America is for everybody."
