Lara Alqasem, 22, flew to Israel on Oct. 2 on a study visa but was refused entry by security officials who cited her role as president of a small local chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of Florida.

In airport detention since, she has been contesting the exclusion, with the backing of Jerusalemís Hebrew University, where she was due to begin a year-long masterís program on Sunday.

On Friday, a Tel Aviv District Court rejected Alqasemís appeal to be allowed in. On Sunday, her lawyers said she filed a dual motion to Israelís Supreme Court to block her looming deportation and consider a last-ditch appeal for entry.
