Suha Abushamma is in the first year of an internal medicine resident program at Cleveland Clinic and holds an H-1B visa for employees in “specialty occupations.” Abushamma holds a Sudanese passport and was detained in a New York airport on Saturday after arriving from a trip to Saudi Arabia.    

Abushamma said Customs and Border Protection agents gave her the option of withdrawing her visa and leaving America voluntarily or being forcibly deported, which would have barred her entry from the United States for a minimum of five years. After her requests for a delay were refused, Abushamma was put on a plane back to Saudi Arabia.
