DemocracyNow speaks with Iranian Doctoral Student Saira Rafiee Blocked from Entering U.S. by Donald Trump

A federal appeals court will hear arguments today on whether to restore President Donald Trump’s executive order banning people from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen from entering the United States.

We speak to one of the people caught up in Trump’s ban, Saira Rafiee, a doctoral student enrolled at the CUNY Graduate Center through an F1 visa. She was initially barred from entering the country last week. We speak to her and Hadi Ghaemi, founder and director of Campaign for Human Rights in Iran.

  • Saira Rafiee: doctoral student enrolled at the CUNY Graduate Center through an F1 visa.
  • Hadi Ghaemi: founder and director of Campaign for Human Rights in Iran.
