Prominent Iranian Doctor Held At Logan Airport In Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban

July 11, 2017

And it continues.

A prominent Iranian cancer researcher traveling to Massachusetts to work at Boston Children’s Hospital has been detained at Logan International Airport along with his wife and children.

The detention of Dr. Mohsen Dehnavi, who holds a visiting work visa that was issued in May, comes two weeks after the Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration could largely enforce an executive order that would ban people from six Muslim-majority countries, including Iran, from entering the United States. The court also ruled that the ban couldn’t apply to visitors who already held valid visas.
