Early today, Meriam Ibrahim, with husband Daniel Wani and children Martin and Maya arrived in Italy after being flown out of Sudan on an Italian government plane. They had been staying at the American Embassy in Khartoum this past month. It is reported that both the Vatican and the Italian government were instrumental in securing her reentry into the free world. She and her family met briefly with Pope Francis today. His Holiness thanked her for her "steadfast witness of faith."
She and her family will most likely fly to the United States within a few days. We certainly pray that they will be welcomed at least as much as the illegal aliens appear to be. I take the opportunity to rebuke the Obama cartel's appalling lack of action in this case (outside of some perfunctory protest and posturing).
