Iman al-Obeidi is finally in the United States two months after she was deported back to Libya and began fighting to leave the country again. Obeidi spent 54 days in a U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees facility in Romania and arrived in New York last Wednesday. She then took a flight to the undisclosed location that will be her new home.
