"The Iranian families have undertaken fraught, costly journeys for the
chance of a few hours together on the library’s grounds. Although
several Iranians said they hadn’t faced any obstacles from immigration
authorities, others said U.S. border officers have at times detained
them for several hours, tried to bar them from entering the library,
told them they shouldn’t be visiting each other there or said they
should limit their visits to just a few minutes. American and Canadian
officials have threatened to shut the library over the visits, one
library staff member said."
