Nur said he pays federal taxes and isn't looking for government assistance. "I'm the one supporting my family. I don't need anything," he said.
He just wants his children to finish their education in the United States.
"That was my dream," Nur said. "Mr. Trump, he mess(ed) up everything. All my dreams."
He said he had one message for the President:
"You have your Melania and your child. ... How (do) you try to separate somebody's wife and his kids for no reason?"
A family will miss a birth
Mohamad Mashta came to the United States from Syria on a student visa in 2012, as his country was in the throes of a civil war. He was later granted asylum and now works at an auto manufacturing plant in Ohio.
But he started feeling unwelcome after Trump issued the first version of his travel ban last year.
"For the first time since I immigrated, I was no longer sure that the US was my home," Mashta told reporters Tuesday.
"It seemed like I was being sent a message: People like me were no longer welcome here," he said on a conference call organized by the ACLU. "At my work as an engineer in an auto manufacturing plant, I felt like I had to defend my religion, nationality and the life that I built in this country."
After the Supreme Court upheld the third version of Trump's travel ban Tuesday, Mashta said he and his wife "are afraid for our future."
"If they are allowed to have this ban, what will they try next? Will I be sent away?" he said.
Mashta said the Supreme Court's decision is especially devastating because he and his wife are expecting their first child in September. Her family won't be able to come see the baby.
"All I can say now," he said, "is this decision made us feel like we are second-class people."
Banned Yemenis question the motive
Yemeni businessman Saleh Mujalli had planned to travel to the United States, but the ban now makes that impossible.
