WASHINGTON — The Latest on the reaction to U.S. President Donald Trump’s ban on travelers and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries (all times Eastern):
A technology firm’s founder says an Iranian employee who had been blocked from returning to the United States by President Donald Trump’s travel ban against seven Muslim nations has re-entered the country.
Eric Martinez said Nazanin Zinouri cleared through an immigration check in Boston and expected to return home to South Carolina on Monday. Martinez is the founder of startup technology firm Modjoul, which has employed Zinouri since August.
Zinouri arrived from the Iranian capital, where the legal U.S. resident traveled late last month to visit family. Martinez says she planned to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday in Boston.
Zinouri said last week she was taken off a plane in Dubai days after Trump signed the executive order for the ban. A federal judge in Seattle blocked the ban.
