It’s not entirely clear at this point why he was deported. Get ready for student protests over this.

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.
