First Denied---Now A Harvard Freshman

A 17-year-old Palestinian student originally denied entry into the U.S. is now ready to begin classes at Harvard.\

Ismail Ajjawi was barred from entering the country last month after being questioned by immigration officials for several hours at Boston's Logan International Airport.

The student from Lebanon told the Harvard Crimson that officials searched his laptop and phone, and also asked him about social media posts made by his friends.

Ajjawi made it to campus on Monday as classes are set to begin Tuesday.
