SAN DIEGO — A man who was not allowed to board a flight from Costa Rica to San Diego because his name appeared on a “no-fly list” returned to the U.S. Thursday evening.
Kevin Iraniha, 27, managed to catch a flight from Costa Rica to Mexico City, and then on to Tijuana. Shortly after 7 p.m., Iraniha walked across the border into the U.S.
Iraniha, a San Diego State University graduate who was born in the U.S., told 10News he never did anything wrong and was being discriminated against because heâ€™s Muslim. Iraniha was in Costa Rica studying international law and recently graduated.
“This is a clear violation of his civil and constitutional rights,” said Hanif Mohebi, the executive director of the Council for Americal-Islamic Relations in Kearny Mesa.
