Logan International Airport

BOSTON (AP) - Two Iranian students attending Boston-area universities have filed complaints with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security saying federal officials at Boston’s Logan International Airport acted illegally in denying them entry to the U.S. to start classes.

Shahab Dehghani, of Northeastern University, and Reihana Emami Arandi, of Harvard University, filed separate administrative challenges in recent days.

The students say federal officials detained and interrogated them for hours before wrongly concluding they planned on staying in the country longer than their temporary visas allowed.

An email seeking comment was sent to the Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection.
