一名最初被拒绝入境的巴勒斯坦学生已经获准进入美国。
A Palestinian student who was at first denied entry to the United States has been admitted to the country.

伊斯梅尔·阿贾维计划前往马萨诸塞州的哈佛大学就读。
Ismail Ajjawi planned to attend Harvard University in Massachusetts.

哈佛大学的《学生报》报道说,他于周一抵达学校,赶上了周二开始的课程。
Harvard’s student paper reported that he arrived at the university on Monday in time for the start of classes Tuesday.

一名代表阿扎维家人的律师发表声明,感谢他的支持者。
A lawyer representing Ajjawi’s family released a statement to thank his supporters.

声明中说:“我们希望现在大家能够尊重我们以及伊斯梅尔的隐私,他现在可以专注于入学事宜和重要的学业了。”
The statement said, “We hope now that everyone can respect our and Ismail’s privacy and he can now simply focus on settling into College and his important class work.”

上周,阿贾维对《哈佛深红报》表示,他被美国联邦工作人员扣留在波士顿机场8个小时。
Last week, Ajjawi told The Harvard Crimson newspaper that U.S. federal agents detained him for eight hours at Boston’s airport.

阿贾维称,他们搜查了他的电子设备,并询问他关于其好友发布的社交媒体帖子。
He said they searched his electronic devices and questioned him about his friends’ social media posts.

他在声明中表示,这些帖文包含“反美政治观点”。
They included “political points of view that oppose the U.S.,” he said in a statement.

阿贾维写道:“我回答说,我与这些帖子没有任何关系,我没有点赞、分享或评论,我告诉她,我不需要为别人发布的帖文承担责任。”
Ajjawi wrote, “I responded that I have no business with such posts and that I didn’t like, (s)hare or comment on them and told her that I shouldn’t be held responsible for what others post.”

不过,美国海关和边境保护局的官员并没有证实这些信息。
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection official, however, would not confirm the information.

这名官员对美联社表示,取消阿贾维签证的决定是基于检查期间发现的信息。
The official told The Associated Press (AP) that the decision to cancel Ajjawi’s visa was based on information discovered during an inspection.

这位官员补充说,阿贾维仍然可以尝试再次重新申请签证进入美国。
The official added, he can still try to reapply for a visa to enter the country.

几个哈佛学生团体随后组织准备了一份请愿书,支持阿贾维获准进入美国。
Several Harvard student groups then organized a petition to support Ajjawi’s admission to the U.S.

联合国巴勒斯坦难民救济和工程处以及个人教育权利基金会也呼吁美国政府准其入境。
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education also called on the U.S. government to admit him.

非营利性组织美国中东教育培训服务中心(AMIDEAST)向阿贾维提供了入读哈佛大学的奖学金。
AMIDEAST, a not-for-profit organization, awarded Ajjawi a scholarship to attend Harvard.

该组织表示,美国驻贝鲁特大使馆审查了他的案件并重新签发了他的签证。
The group said the U.S. Embassy in Beirut examined his case and reissued his visa.

阿贾维的家人通过律师补充表示:“我们非常感谢黎巴嫩、华盛顿、马萨诸塞州以及哈佛大学许多个人和官员们的努力,正是他们使我们的儿子阿贾维得以在哈佛大学开始他的学业。”
Through their lawyer, Ajjawi’s family added, “We truly appreciate the efforts of so many individuals and officials in Lebanon, Washington, Massachusetts and at Harvard that have made it possible for our son Ismail Ajjawi to begin his studies at Harvard with his class.”
