Iranians detained at border, advocacy group claims

The Washington chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-WA) said immigration authorities detained and questioned at least 60 Iranians and Iranian-Americans at border crossing in Blaine, Washington. The watchdog group said some were held for 11 hours. Customs and Border Protection said the claim was false but said there were unusual delays up to 4 hours due to high volume.
