    Meet The Iranian PhD Graduate Who Was Denied Entry To US After Donald Trump's Ban. Photos

    An Iranian PhD graduate who has been living in the US for nearly seven years was pulled off a plane headed to the U.S. following Trump's immigrant ban. Nazanin Zinouri, from Tehran, Iran, was escorted off her flight by two officers at a Dubai airport on Saturday after President Donald Trump severely restricted immigration from seven countries....

    The PhD graduate from Clemson University has lived in the United States for nearly seven years and shared her emotional story on Facebook which said 'everything I worked for all these years doesn't matter.' 

    Zinouri, a data scientist, left to visit her family in Iran on Friday, January 20, and said in a Facebook post that she only gets to see her relatives around once a year, due to the 28-hour journey. 

    She said when rumors began swirling last week about looming immigration restrictions, she booked a ticket back to South Carolina. 

    Only hours before boarding her flight, Trump signed an order that blocked immigrants from seven 'Muslim' countries from entering the US. 

    Zinouri made it as far as Dubai before she said she was questioned for 40 minutes and eventually pulled off her flight headed to Washington.
