Land of the Free | Day 90 •
90 days ago, on January 27, 2017, President of the United States signed the executive order 13769, titled Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry to the United States. Among other things, the order suspended the entry of the citizens of seven countries — including mine, Iran — to the United States for 90 days. As a result, more than 700 travelers with valid visas were detained and up to 60,000 visas were "provisionally revoked." I just happened to be inside.
This series was an attempt to capture the daily life of a newly immigrated Iranian US resident, facing the absurdity of vilification. It was a 90-day survey of me in existence, and an homage to all the memories I have made in this land.
