British Muslim schoolteacher denied entry to US

British Muslim schoolteacher denied entry to USA British Muslim schoolteacher travelling to New York last week as a member of a school party from south Wales was denied entry to the United States.

This is reported by The Guardian.

Juhel Miah and a group of children and other teachers were about to take off from Iceland on 16 February on their way to the US when he was removed from the plane at Reykjavik.

The maths teacher, who had valid visa documentation, was escorted from the aircraft by security personnel. He was searched and taken to a cheap hotel where he was forced to remain for two days while his employer, Neath Port Talbot council, demanded an explanation from the US embassy in London, with the issue being taken up by Welsh politicians, and then booked him on to a flight back to the UK.

A council spokesman said Miah was left feeling belittled at what it described as “an unjustified act of discrimination”.

The council said the teacher is a British citizen and does not have dual nationality.

There was no immediate response from the US embassy in London.
