Report: Iranians Say Joe Biden Has Not Kept Promise to Bring Muslims into United States

Iranians in the United States say they were hoping the election of Joe Biden as president would mean that their loved ones would be allowed to come into the country after the reversal of former President Donald’s Trump’s policy to restrict travel from countries with links to terrorism.

Iran is considered by the U.S. federal government as a state sponsor of terrorism, but Biden is framing his decision as stopping a xenophobic policy targeting Muslims.

Taxpayer-funded National Public Radio (NPR) interviewed Iranian Americans who are disappointed by Biden’s failure to keep his campaign promise:

One impact of the Trump travel ban was to divide families. Eli, a 34-year-old Iranian with a green card, lives in Los Angeles. Like all the Iranians interviewed for this story, she asked that her family name not be used for fear of retaliation if she returns to Iran. Eli says of all the issues she faced moving to the U.S., the travel ban was the worst.

“The travel ban – actually, the Muslim ban, I don’t know – or Trump ban, anything you name it – affect us very widely, and it has direct effect in our life,” Eli said.
