Freshman Previously Denied Entry to the United States Arrives at Harvard | The Harvard Crimson

Harvard freshman Ismail B. Ajjawi ’23, who United States border officials turned away ten days ago, arrived on campus Monday in time for the start of classes Tuesday.

Ajjawi’s family issued a statement Monday through his lawyer thanking those who voiced support for him and assisted his arrival.

“The last ten days have been difficult and anxiety filled, but we are most grateful for the thousands of messages of support and particularly the work of AMIDEAST,” the statement reads. “We hope now that everyone can respect our and Ismail’s privacy and he can now simply focus on settling into College and his important class work.”
