Refugees Welcomed at Louisville International Airport

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A family of refugees arrives in Louisville after getting caught in the Trump administration's immigration order. 

The family is from the African nation of the Congo, which is not part of the travel ban. However, the family of six was stuck in Dubai when the immigration order was announced last week

 The family includes the mother, Elizabeth, her four sons and her adult brother. They've been stationed at a refugee camp in Zambia since 2004. 

They will be co-sponsored by Kentucky Refugee Ministries and St. Matthews Episcopal Church.

Kentucky Refugee Ministries will not be accepting any more families for the next 120 days because of a provision of the order that shuts down the U.S. refugee admissions program.
