University of South Carolina professor Doctor Abbas Tavakoli, who is from Iran, is concern with what the new ban will bring.
"My concern is the path we are making people against each other. That's not agood path," says Dr. Tavakoli
This new ban could also affect his family. One of his sons is graduating from A.C. Flora High School and some of his Iranian family might not be able to make the trip the United States to see him graduate. Tavakoli's wife's cousin was suppose to be coming to the graduation, but because she is a Canadian citizen and also from Iran it will be difficult for her to make the trip.
Others around Columbia share his concerns. University of South Carolina student Sophie Tipton believes that the Trump administration had good intentions on the security of American citizens, but ended up only stirring up more mistrust in America and around the world.
Dr. Tavakoli has been an American since 1996 and says it is very annoying not knowing what's going to happen and what policies will be implemented.
