Congressman to Reintroduce Legislation Barring Travel From Iran
Ask your member of Congress to oppose the STEP Act
January 8, 2010, Washington, D.C. – Congressman J. Gresham Barrett (R-SC/3rd) announced his plans to reintroduce the Stop Terrorists Entry Program Act (STEP) into the House of Representatives, a bill he originally introduced in 2003. According to a press release from Congressman Barrett’s office, the STEP Act would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to bar the entry of individuals to the United States from countries that are State Sponsors of Terrorism, including Iran, as well as Yemen.
If enacted, the proposed legislation could effectively forbid all Iranians from immigrating, visiting, or studying in the United States. Individuals seeking political or religious asylum as well as those requiring emergency medical treatment may be exempt from the provisions.
