A member of a British Muslim family that was prevented from flying to the United States for a trip to Disneyland had been refused entry to Israel two years ago.

Eleven members of the family traveling together, two brothers and nine of their children, were not allowed to board a plane departing from Gatwick Airport on Dec. 15, London-based The Guardian reported.

US Department of Homeland Security officials did not tell the family why they were not permitted to fly to the US even though they had travel authorization documents.
