From the way you've worded that, it seems she did not have a visa to visit so the outcome was to be expected.

She had visa but since she also had middle east stamps in her passport...

Once my GF flew from Guam to California on her way to Panama.
She wanted to visit California perhaps for a day.
NO said the Border Control.
An officer grabbed her firm but gently to the exit.

Having flown to many, many, many countries in my lifetime.

I also have been 'stuck' inside Non American Airports.

BTW: In one month. I will be 'stuck' again, inside a Non American Airport for about 5 hours, awaiting a Connecting Flight.

And all I wish to do. Is go outside to 'stretch my legs' :-(

The Statue of Liberty is at the centre of a violent tourism turf war.

Each year, approximately four million people visit Liberty Island and Ellis Island, and the competition to ferry these tourists on sightseeing trips from New York has become fierce — literally.

Ultra-aggressive hawkers peddling tickets for tours are behind a spate of violence that has culminated in a shooting. And not even the tourists are safe.
