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 he’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.
