Iranian Student Returns To LAX After Forced Deportation Under Trump’s Ban: LAist

A little before 1 p.m. Sunday, Sara Yarjani, a graduate student at the California Institute for Human Science in Encinitas, California, and an Iranian citizen, returned to LAX after being refused entry into the country last week.Yarjani, who holds a student visa to the U.S., previously arrived at the airport on Janaury 27, just hours after President Donald Trump’s travel ban on immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries—including Iran—went into effect. According to the L.A. Times, Yarjani is a permanent resident of Austria and has lived outside of Iran for most of the last 20 years. She had been visiting family in Vienna over her winter break.After landing on January 27, she was detained for 23 hours by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, long enough for a federal judge in Brooklyn to rule an emergency stay on the travel ban.
