So there is one individual who did get back in and is back here with his family. My own doctor is from Iran, a nice older man. So I guess he probably doesn't dare go back for a visit either?

This is so wrong. If Trump wants to go after ILLEGALS, ok. But don't go after the people who obeyed the laws and came here rightfully. I think Trump doesn't have much of a clue as to what he's doing.
I can see a go slow on the refugees although the state department and FBI say they already do "extreme vetting" that take nearly two years. But this going after legally admitted persons, people who have jobs, cars, homes, families in the US is intolerable.

This isn't just a few people, it is happening at every airport with the US as a destination. Now who do you suppose should be in charge of making sure the policy of an executive order signed by the president is interpreted correctly.


Please stop minimalizing with "no one made an issue until now", that is complete nonsense.


They put an Iranian National in handcuffs for 17 hours then released him, this will make a great add for the Ayatollah.
Some of these people would have spent years being vetted and going through an arduous process, just to be cleared, make their arrangements and get to the airport finally. Then this crap. It's heartbreaking.

Tyranny by the unelected. Trump should ignore this until at last SCOTUS weighs in.
