Northeastern University Student From Iran Gets Detained and Deported
“deported Monday night despite an emergency stay granted by Judge Allison D. Burroughs”
It’s not entirely clear at this point why he was deported. Get ready for student protests over this.
The Hill reports:
Iranian student admitted to US university deported
An Iranian student admitted to Northeastern University was reportedly deported Monday night despite an emergency stay granted by a Massachusetts district judge.
Mohammad Shahab Dehghani Hossein was detained at Boston Logan International Airport and faced immediate removal from the U.S. when he arrived Sunday, according to an emergency petition filed by his lawyer Kerry Doyle in Massachusetts district court.
He was deported Monday night despite an emergency stay granted by Judge Allison D. Burroughs, which ordered that Dehghani’s removal be stayed for 48 hours or until further notice, CNN reported.
Dehghani’s attorneys argue the 24-year-old student’s “expedited removal is a result of additional scrutiny targeting Iranian citizens” and is not “based in legitimate concerns of Plaintiff’s admissibility to the United States.”
“It is unclear why Defendants would now decide, after conducting a full visa issuance process, that Plaintiff’s student visa should be revoked,” Doyle said in the filing.

Reminder: A USA visa does not give you the right to be admitted to the USA, it gives you the right to arrive at the airport and apply for admission. There is no guarantee that the application will be approved.
I don’t think that’s accurate, Milhouse. You apply for the visa through our diplomatic channels and it should be vetted before your arrival.
Having said that, it IS a privilege and could be revoked for a lot of reasons.
I’m going to guess we’ll find out he was tweeting jihadi stuff, emailing an IRGC account, or he lied about something on his application.
Or, yes, it could just be shutting down Iranian travel as part of the sanctions. Which is a perfectly legitimate exercise of executive power. In which case, sucks to be you, dude – chat with your gov’t about it.
So why can’t we deport criminals that are here illegally that easily?
We are effectively at war with Iran and shouldn’t allow Iranians entry into our country.
