The Al-Rubaiawi family immigrated to the United States from Iraq in 2010. Haider currently works as a taxi driver, while Seina practices her English and studies for the citizenship test. Their children, Tamara (15), Ali (13), Fatima (11), Zahraa (9), and Mousa (8), attend school in Glendale, Arizona. The family is pictured celebrating Thanksgiving a day late, on Black Friday, when Haider had a day off.
