On the way back from visiting his family in Pakistan, Adeel Mysorewala, like many students returning to school after winter break, waited in the airport for a couple of hours.
However, his plane wasn't delayed; instead, he was waiting to register with the INS.
"I had to wait over two hours, and I missed my connecting flight to Tucson," Mysorewala, a civil engineering junior and president of the Pakistani Students Association said.
But Mysorewala believes the special registration requirement was acceptable and understandable, while others believe it is a violation of their rights and privacy.
"I think it's wrong," said Arman Navabi, a computer science senior and vice president of the UA Iranian Students Association. "No terrorist is going to register."
