Glenn Fawcett/U.S. Customs and Border ProtectionOfficers with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations, process international arrivals of passenger flights.

Recently, nine Chinese students at Arizona State University were returning to the U.S. for the new school year when they were detained by customs officers at Los Angeles International Airport and sent back to China.

This comes at a time when tensions between the U.S. and China are intensifying, and suspicion towards China is spreading. Just this summer, NPR reported that U.S. intelligence agencies are encouraging universities to monitor students and visiting scholars from institutions affiliated with the Chinese state.
