The University at Buffalo has announced that a student who had been delayed in Iran under President Donald Trump's immigration executive order has returned to Buffalo and will resume his studies this week.

School officials say the student wishes to remain anonymous, but is pursuing a master's degree in UB’s School of Architecture and Planning.

According to the school, the return was made possible when a federal judge in Seattle last week temporarily blocked the immigration order.

University officials have been in touch with all 112 students affected by executive order, and all of the students have begun classes at the university.

Also, all 20 faculty, staff and visiting scholars affected by the immigration order are accounted for and have resumed their duties at the university.
