South Carolina woman banned from returning to US

A Clemson graduate is stuck overseas blocked from coming back to the US after Trump’s travel ban went into effect. A post on her Facebook page is going viral, getting over 200,000 shares over the weekend.

Nazanin Zinouri was on vacation in Iran visiting family. When she heard of Trump’s immigration plan, she cut her trip short and hurried back to the US. In Dubai, she was stopped and denied re-entry.

Zinouri graduated from Clemson in 2016 with a Ph.D in Industrial Engineering while also working as a graduate research assistant for three years. Now working as a data modeler, she says she has been living in the United States for nearly 7 years and now calls it home.

A GoFundMe page has been set up in Zinouri’s name in order to help pay for legal and travel fees.
