Impact of President Trump's Executive Order on Iranian Students

President Trump's executive order on restricting immigration from seven Muslim countries ignited nationwide protests and a series of legal challenges. At least four federal judges in different states have blocked part of the order and temporarily paused the deportation of some refugees and travelers who reached U.S. airports.
The order is unclear and unspecified to some great extent and this has resulted in a chaotic state. In particular, many fellow Iranian students are concerned about their future immigration and employment status. Therefore, PACSA has decided on hosting a series of sessions to address some of these concerns by inviting some of the most accomplished immigration lawyers to USC.
The first of such session is held on Saturday (February 4th), 5:00 PM, in KAP 160 (Kaprielian Building). Ms. Zohreh Mizrahi, one of the foremost Immigration Attorneys in the United States, will address some of the main impacts of the new order and answer questions by the audience.
