Rally for CUNY Grad Student Saira Rafiee 1/30 at 1 PM

PSC-CUNY, the CUNY Dreamers, the University Student Senate, and Brooklyn borough president Eric Adams will hold a rally and press conference tomorrow at 1 PM at 25 Cadman Plaza East in Brooklyn to demand that Saira Rafiee, a student at the CUNY Grad Center, be allowed to travel to the United States to continue her graduate work. Ms. Rafiee, an Iranian citizen, was in transit by way of Abu Dhabi when she was forbidden to board a plane to New York and was detained for almost 18 hours. She has now been able to fly back to Tehran, but is still barred from reentry to the U.S.
