    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration on Friday added six countries to the nations facing stringent travel restrictions, virtually blocking immigration from Africa’s most populous nation, Nigeria, and from Myanmar, where refugees are fleeing genocide.

    Beside Nigeria, varying degrees of restrictions will hit three other African countries, Eritrea, Sudan and Tanzania, and one former Soviet state, Kyrgyzstan. Myanmar’s Muslim Rohingya could also be caught in the crossfire. The total number of countries on the restricted travel list now stands at 13.

    Immigrant visas, issued mostly to foreigners intending to live in the United States, will be banned from Nigeria, Myanmar, Eritrea and Kyrgyzstan. The ban would prevent immigrants from Sudan and Tanzania from obtaining diversity visas. Homeland Security and State Department officials said some immigrants would be able to obtain waivers from the restrictions.

    The proclamation, which President Trump was expected to sign on Friday, will take effect on February 22.

    enacted in 2017 to restrict travel from Muslim-majority countries, is necessary to ensure that countries satisfy security requirements for travel into the United States, or face restrictions until they do.

    The expansion of the restrictions, which already affected more than 135 million people in seven countries, is likely to hinder more than 12,300 potential immigrants from resettling in the United States or reuniting with their families. The effect on Nigeria, not only Africa’s most populous country but also its largest economy, could be particularly severe.

    A United States government official said the administration was adding Nigeria and Tanzania to the list because of the number of people who come from the African countries on a visa and end up illegally staying in the United States. The official said Sudan and Eritrea had not satisfied the administration’s information-sharing requirements.

    The extension of the travel ban comes at a delicate time for international travel. American Airlines and Delta Air Lines began on Friday to voluntarily curtail flights to the United States from China to combat the coronavirus, and further restrictions are likely.

    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!


    Crackers on this forum like @Hamartia Antidote @KAL-EL @TruthSeeker will never get the meaning of those words

    That's offensive man.

    How would you like it if they termed you something derogatory?

    Consider this.

    Also, your quote and subsequent post are completely and ironically disparate.

    Crackers like us are totally for immigration and accepting those characterized by the poem you quote. We are not for ILLEGAL immigration. Every nation on earth has the right to establish the legal manner that people may, or may not, enter their nation.

    Is this ban also applies to Suu Kyi? All western countries should follow the US example. Exclude MM nationals from traveling abroad and gradually boycott their exports.

    If I am not wrong diplomats are immune from any kind of ban! So Suu Kyi will be ok to travel other countries including USA to participate at UN.

    Hear hear!

    I for one love crackers, especially Hors d'oeuvres with smoked salmon. And Allah bless the nice American housewives who go into such trouble offering those All-American pies and those amazing spreads during Thanksgiving. :-)

    But seriously - don't take offense...people have called me far worse in the US...especially in the South when I was visiting. One takes the good with the bad. All part of life....

    Indians are far more racist than any White American will ever be. Mein Kampf is a best-seller in Indian Train station news-stands.
