And still no Saudi Arabia, after everything. Just goes to show our hypocrisy runs deep, and in 'Murica, money can buy you out of anything.

Looking forward to the real reasons for the ban trickling out in 3...2...1...

This makes no effing sense. Nigerian immigrants to the US tend to be highly educated and and hard working members of society in this country.

I hope these clowns get voted out in November.

Probably the prevalence of Boko Haram. I think there are better ways to screen then a full blown ban though, I find that counter productive.

Why Tanzania?

Someone's already asked why Myanmar. Nigeria is sort of big for African business travel, so you'd think Saudi Arabia would make the list too since it's also a business destination full of people who hate us.

Only Eritrea and Sudan make sense, along with the Stan with too few vowels.

Right but with that logic they should include Saudi Arabia, which we know will never happen.

Boko Haram is made up of local hillbillies that probably have never seen an airplane close, let alone ridden on one.

The US is considering leaving the fight in the Sahel, coincidence ?

The Myanmar regime is participating in active genocide against a minority in its country. The thing is, that minority just so happens to be Muslim.

How does a travel ban on entire country solve any issue btw? You're not denying opportunities to the govt officials. It's the common man who suffers

Is it really appropriate or his just throwing his frustration to these countries?

he heard Myanmar and Muslim in the same sentence, and that is why they made the list. So... no.... as usual.
