Ahmadinejad Announces that Iran is a Nuclear State

Earlier this week, the Islamic Republic of Iran began enriching uranium to a higher level, an acceleration of its nuclear program. The US response was to threaten a "significant regime of sanctions" though the Obama Administration failed to disclose any specific set of sanctions.

Iran's announcement that it has begun enriching uranium to a higher level places the west in a quandary over the appropriate response. The move increases fears that the process could eventually be used to give the Islamic Republic nuclear weapons, a charge that Iran denies.

France and the US have said that Iran's action leaves little choice but to push harder for a fourth set of United Nations Security Council sanctions. Russia, which has close ties to Iran and has opposed new sanctions, appears to be edging closer to Washington's position, saying the new enrichment plans show the concerns about Iran's nuclear intentions are well-founded.

So how much has changed for immigration?
