Nazanin Zinouri is an Iranian-born engineer living legally in the US. She is stranded in Iran because of President Trump's travel ban on seven, Muslim-majority countries.
The Trump administration has asked the US' highest court to reinstate his ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority countries. The bill has been repeatedly blocked in the lower courts.
A US appeals court has ruled against a revised travel ban by US President Donald Trump targeting six Muslim-majority countries. The ban is opposed by many as unconstitutional and likely headed for the Supreme Court.
Judges expressed skepticism over the need for the travel ban, asking whether there was any evidence of a link between the seven countries and terrorism. The court said a decision would come "as soon as possible."
President Donald Trump's new travel ban for six majority-Muslim countries will go into effect on March 16. Many US states plan to file lawsuits against the revised ban but they probably will not win in the short term.
