Woman forced to leave U.S. by new order treated 'like a criminal'
Sara Yarjani, not allowed into U.S. after returning from trip, held in custody then deported
Since Friday, millions of people around the world have expressed anger and outrage after U.S. President Donald Trump issued an executive order temporarily barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
That move has created chaos for many families affected by the order, including those who already had the proper visas and paperwork.
Salma Yarjani, a former K-W resident who now lives in Ottawa, was of the many affected by the recent travel ban.
Her sister, Sara, who was studying her Master's degree in the U.S., was not allowed back into the country after returning from a trip, despite having proper documentation. Her plane landed too late to beat the ban.
"It's a very unfortunate situation and it's all based on no good reason, just the fact that we were born in Iran," Salma told CBC.
