An Iranian doctor and his family were detained at Boston's Logan International Airport

It's unclear why he and his family were detained, but a lawyer for the hospital says the family could be sent back to Iran as early as Tuesday.

Dehnavi has been detained while traveling with his wife and three children.

Mohsen Dehnavi and his family arrived at Logan International Airport with the J-1 visa they needed to enter the country.

"This individual was deemed inadmissible to the USA based on information discovered during the CBP inspection for reasons unrelated to the Executive Order", said spokeswoman Stephanie Malin.

An Iranian doctor traveling to work with Boston Children's Hospital has been detained at Logan Airport, the hospital announced on Tuesday.

The stop, customs spokesperson Stephanie Malin said, was based on information discovered during the agency's review.

On Tuesday, the MA chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union tweeted out that it was "hearing reports from Logan Airport about possible violations of the Supreme Court's order on the Muslim ban".

Two weeks ago, the United States supreme court upheld a revised version of Mr Trump's ban on travellers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, though it excluded visitors with a "bona fide" family tie.

'The travel ban and the whole anti-immigrant mood coming from the very top of this administration certainly affects their ability'. But the court said the ban can't block people with a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States". Airport officials told him that the family would have to complete more paperwork before going forward.

"What #MuslimBan is doing RIGHT NOW", the National Iranian American Council's Trita Parsi said on Twitter Tuesday morning.

Gregory Romanovsky, chair of the American Immigration Lawyer's Association, told NBC Boston that the detainment of the Dehnavi family shows an "overzealous enforcement" of immigration laws.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, a Democrat, told reporters he was waiting to hear more about the Dehnavis' circumstances, but also suggested the case was an example of concerns with the travel ban.
