A security change is now in place for those using Student Visas to study in the United States. This move comes in light of the Boston Marathon bombing.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Washington DC:

Customs and Border Protection is now verifying every international student who arrives in the U.S., has a valid Student Visa.

The Obama Administration acknowledges a student from Kazakhstan, now accused of hiding evidence for the Boston Bombing suspect, was allowed to return to the U.S. earlier this year without a valid Student Visa. Azamat Tazhayakov's Visa had been terminated when he arrived in New York in January, but the Border Agent at the airport did not have access to that information.

In Washington, Jared Halpern, FOX News Radio.
