The Five Cent Cigar recently published a poignant article about the personal impact of the Trump administration’s Executive Order on Immigration, including an interview with a brave Iranian grad student. Her story demonstrates just how destructive this policy is to those in the cross-hairs of this Executive Order through no fault of their own.
“Should I continue my program and doing my PhD in the U.S.?,” she said. “If so, with this order, I cannot visit my parents for at least, say, three more years. So, is that worth it? I didn’t do anything wrong. I pay my taxes. I was a very good student and I teach American students as well. I did my best here.”
