Nine Chinese undergrads from ASU were detained at Los Angeles International Airport late last week. The news comes as tensions between the US and China continue to grow.

The students, some of whom were set to graduate this fall, were sent back to China after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials denied them reentry.
