Reza Farahani is pursuing his doctoral degree in engineering at IUPUI.
His father is going to have heart surgery in two weeks but if he travels back home to see him, he wouldn’t be able to get back into the country.
“I get to see two members of my family if I’m lucky every two years, before all of this. Now, I’m not going to see them at all,” Farahani said. “I think it’s a never-ending loop because there is no logic involved. You get nowhere.”
