An incoming Harvard freshman was quizzed about friends' social media posts and ultimately turned away by immigration officials after touching down at Boston's airport Friday.
Ismail Ajjawi, a 17-year-old Palestinian who lives in Lebanon, said he had his visa canceled after hours of questioning by an immigration official.
"After the 5 hours ended, she called me into a room, and she started screaming at me," Ajjawi said in a statement. "She said that she found people posting political points of view that oppose the US on my friends list."
He added that he has no posts on his own timeline that touch on politics.
Harvard said it was working to get Ajjawi into the country.
