"An Iranian chemical engineer returning on a cruise from Mexico to Port Everglades said Sunday morning that he was detained by U.S. Customs officials.

Maysam Sodagari, a passenger on an annual gay cruise, gave a running Facebook account of his detention, including two Facebook Live videos.

"In one night my status changed, from a legal person to a kind of illegal," he told reporters at the port.

About three hours after his first post, he was outside Terminal 18 with his bags. Sodagari posted a minute later: “I am free to go back home.”

"Maysam Sodagari, of San Francisco, a permanent resident who has lived in the U.S. for nine years, said he was singled out, ushered into a small interview room in the terminal and questioned by federal agents after arriving on the Allure of the Seas following a week-long cruise in the Caribbean."

"If I get detained and sent back to Iran, at least I lived the life to the fullest as a gay man in the U.S., and I want to thank you all fir [sic] being part of the experience.""
