Re:  Banning  citizens  of  the  United  States  From  Iran  
 
Your  Excellency,  
 
  I  am  sending  you  this  letter  out  of  serious  concern  over  the  government  of  he  
Islamic  Republic  of  Iran  banning  citizens  of  he  Untied  States  of  America  from  
entering  the  Islamic  Republic  of  Iran.1  It  is  to  my  knowledge  and  understand  of  the  
facts  that  your  country’s  decision  came  after  President  Donald  J.  Trump  of  the  
United  States  of  America  issued  Executive  Order:  Protecting  the  Nation  From  
Foreign  Terrorist  Entry  Into  the  United  States,  in  which  upon  theory  and  belief  was  
aimed  as  to  targeting  individuals  on  the  basis  of  their  ethnic  origin  and  their  
religion.    
 
  I  hope  that  you  are  aware  that  the  American  people  are  not  okay  with  signed  
Executive  Order  in  which  President  Donald  J.  Trump  was  attempting  as  to  enacting.  I  
also  hope  that  you  are  aware  that  banning  citizens  of  the  United  States  from  
entering  the  Islamic  Republic  of  Iran  is  a  retaliatory  measure  that  your  country  is  
taking  against  the  people  of  the  United  States  due  to  the  actions  of  our  President.  
Such  a  decision  by  your  foreign  government  is  absolutely  unwise  and  is  only  adding  
fuel  to  the  fire.      
 
  I  absolutely  urge  the  government  of  the  Islamic  Republic  of  Iran  to  reverse  
the  decision  to  ban  citizens  of  the  United  States  of  America  from  entering  the  
country.  Your  country’s  ban  only  targets  citizens  of  the  United  States  in  which  are  
not  in  the  government  of  the  United  States  of  America.  Your  foreign  government’s  
decision  only  affects  the  people  that  have  nothing  to  do  with  the  drafting  or  the  
enactment  of  the  Executive  Order.

  Please  note  that  borders  do  nothing  than  to  create  division.  Division  creates  
isolation  and  isolation  is  extremely  bad  for  diplomacy.  Hopefully  one  day  the  United  
States  and  Iran  will  fully  reestablish  diplomatic  relations  and  will  both  end  their  
hostility  towards  one  another.  Further  I  am  hoping  that  as  far  as  the  nuclear  
negations  go,  that  all  sides  as  to  this  issue  will  faithfully,  respectfully  and  will  
peacefully  negotiate  terms  without  the  need  for  any  other  types  of  conflicts  to  occur.
