Academic banned from returning to US after Iran trip following Donald Trump Iranian woman Nazanin Zinouri has been studying and working in the United States for the past seven years.
She received her PhD in industrial engineering, specialising in optimisation and operations research and now works as a data scientist at Clemson University in South Carolina. Last Monday the 29 year old dropped her puppy off at her friend's house, parked her car in the long term parking at Atlanta Airport and flew home to Iran for a short holiday. Now, after US President Donald Trump issued an executive order temporarily banning people from seven Muslim majority countries including Iran from entering the country, she has no idea when she will get back. What does the ban mean? Donald Trump's executive order on immigration and its immediate consequences explained. "About a day after I arrived here I started hearing rumours that there are going to be new immigration rules, not letting people from Muslim countries into the United States, but I thought 'it's all going to be rumours'," she said. "Plus if something like that happens it's going to be for new visas, possibly for people trying to go there for the first time. "They can't really they're not going to stop someone who's been living there from going back to their homes?" Last Thursday night in Tehran, Ms Nazanin sat glued to her TV, watching as Mr Trump signed the executive order. Despite having a valid visa, she began to worry about getting back home, so she decided to cut her long awaited three week holiday with her family short. "That was really a terrifying moment, and I just decided to go ahead and find the earliest flight at any cost," she said. On Friday Ms Nazanin boarded a flight that left Tehran at 8:10am, and she arrived in ray ban 3341 Dubai at 10:55am. She then got through security at Dubai and boarded her flight to Washington, which wayfarer ray ban sunglasses was due to depart about 3:00pm. She was just settling into her seat when two transport security officials approached her and said they had been notified that she was traveling on an Iranian passport. "There was lot of talking.

"I knew what was coming ray ban sunglasses for men aviator but I wasn't sure if it was actually happening, and after minutes and minutes of horror not knowing what's coming, finally, they removed me and they said I cannot go to the United States based on the new security rules." After she was told she could not travel to Washington, Ms Nazanin was devastated.
