Your visa for the US could be rejected because of something your friend posted on social media
Recently, a Palestinian teenager, Ismail Ajjawi from Lebanon who was admitted to Harvard University was traveling to the US on a study visa. He was reportedly held by immigration officers at Boston Logan International Airport.
He was allegedly questioned about his religion and religious practices.
According to SBS News, the boy was later on locked in a room and a female immigration officer went through his mobile phone. She reportedly started shouting at him while pointing at a social media post that opposed the political views of USA. The teenager said that the WhatsApp post was shared by one of his friends and he has nothing to do with it.
The US immigration officers, however, canceled his visa and deported him back to Lebanon on the next flight. Michael McCarthy, a spokesman for US Customs and Border Protection Agency said, “This individual was deemed inadmissible to the United States based on information discovered during the CBP inspection.”
