How Iran Plans to 'Retaliate' Against Trump's Immigration Orders

Well, just when we thought the ACLU had the loudest response to Trump's executive order banning immigration from seven countries in the Middle East and Africa for three months, threatening a lawsuit, Iran has made a much more sinister announcement.

Iran intends to limit visas awarded to American tourists, according to the Associated Press.

"Iran, to defend the dignity of the great Iranian nation, will implement the principle of reciprocity until the removal of the insulting restriction against Iranian nationals," the Iranian foreign ministry said in a statement.

Immediately following Trump's executive order signature, visitors from Muslim-majority countries have been detained both on their way to the States and upon arrival. Protests have erupted outside of John F. Kennedy airport in New York City, where two Iraqi men were being held.
