Linkedin Profile caused OPT students deported at Chicago Airport

F-1 students were reportedly denied entry at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport after the examining CBP officer discovered that the students falsified employment history information on their resumes and undertook Optional Practical Training (OPT) employment.

The officer learned of the discrepancies by cross-checking the students’ assertions during their entry interviews with employment information found on the students’ LinkedIn profiles. The students were forced to withdraw their applications to study in the U.S. and return home to India.
