Mazdak Tootkaboni and Arghavan Louhghalam are Civil and Environmental Engineering professors and, according to university officials, were on the way back from a conference in Paris when they were detained. Both are Iranian nationals, Muslims, and legal permanent residents of the United States with green cards. They landed at Logan Airport in Boston  and were stopped from leaving the airport by US Customs and Border Protection agents and detained for three hours. The agents detained them pursuant to US President Trump's Friday executive order that halts any entry for people from several predominantly Muslim nations, including Iran. Tootkaboni was later released much to the relief of his friends and family.
