Summary

Immigration to the US has been a hot topic lately and an extremely complex issue. US immigration laws and regulations differ for every country of origin but Iranians have been always affected by specific rules which normally get updated over the time. The regulations are normally influenced by ongoing sanctions against the country.

The Department of Homeland Security has begun the process of implementing changes to the traveler eligibility requirements of the Visa Waiver Program enacted on December 18, 2015. How Iranians are affected by this the new updates? Or generally, how can the sanctions update affect Iranian immigration processes.
Here is a summary of what will be covered in the presentation: 

- Immigration policies affecting Iranians and Iranian Americans 

- sanctions update as the nuclear deal and sanction relief will be implemented 

  - a short discussion of the effect of islamophobia on Iranian Americans and some suggested solutions.
