trrJuly 16, (THAINDIAN NEWS) A Virginia based Somali-American man who was previously on U.S. no-fly list will be permitted to come back to the USA, as it has been reported. He was forced to stay stuck in the middle east for the last few months owing to the restriction which was making things hard for him and his family members. The 26-year-old man’s name is Yahya Wehelie. He is going to come back to the USA soon.

As one can understand his mother Shamsa Noor is extremely happy over the development and she is looking forward to the return of her son. When she heard that after such a long wait her son would be coming back, she could not hold back her tears and the emotion was too overbearing for her to speak. Shamsa Noor sent her offspring to Yemen 2 years back. He went there to learn computers and Arabic. When he was coming back he was detained at Egypt and the FBI agents queried him about the people he mixed with in Yemen. That led to all the troubles.

The mother of Yahya Wehelie is still quite apprehensive. She is happier now but has said before she sees her son she will not be able to take rest. The Muslim advocacy groups are rather unhappy with the number of American-born Muslims being denied re-entry to the country. The FBI has declined to comment on this issue. The security in air flights have been beefed up and immigration related issues in the USA are also being made more stringent nowadays.
