Residents of 'Tehrangeles' disagree on the worth of the Iranian nuclear deal

Washington has been a focal point for discussions around the Iran Nuclear deal, but it’s not the only place the agreement is being debated. Around the country, people are making their opinions known — sometimes loudly, and sometimes more subtly — in coffee shops and at dinner tables. Nowhere is this debate more relevant than inLos Angeles’ Westwood neighborhood, also known as "Tehrangeles." It’s home to the largest Persian community outside of Iran.
