What Donald Trump’s Newly Announced Travel Ban Restriction on Nigerian Immigrants Means



According to The Tribune, Donald Trump‘s administration announced on Friday that will begin restraining immigrants from Nigeria, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Eritrea, Sudan and Tanzania from entering the U.S.

The new restriction comes three years after Donald Trump travel ban was first announced, which barred people from several Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S.

The restriction is not a travel ban for those coming to the U.S, but Nigerians and the other countries will be restricted from permanent immigration visas, which include some family and employer-sponsored visas, as well as the diversity visa lottery.

Visas given to people travelling to the U.S. for temporary stay such as tourists, businessmen and women, medical treatment will not be affected. Sudanese nationals and Tanzanians will only be excluded from the diversity visa lottery and the restrictions will be effective by February 22.

The administration says the ban is necessary to protect the U.S against potential acts of terrorism.

      China doesn’t have Lai Mohammed and his cohort of lying and rent-seeking Lawyers and Accountants, trying to ban or affect social media which are dominated by American companies.

      And even if they did, China has a lot of leverage from their own development and industries.

      Nigerians like to laugh away serious issues like a Minister lying in a very useless way on International platforms or very publicly.

      These are some of the implications especially when foreigners are on-the-fence about an issue, it helps them decide, since they can’t trust a single word coming out of the mouth of those Lawyers and Accountants.

      They too will give you any flimsy excuse they want, you can go and argue it with your transformer.

      If US doesn’t reverse the ban, you can expert that more restrictions are yet to come.

    Yes,it necessary for Nigerians to be barn from US, even to travel out to other develop countries, for any reason all, both medical, business, education and so on. Most especially the politicians, let them stay here and make their own country work , develop it like where they are traveling to. Nigeria has all that it takes to make it a better place for anyone to live.if America or other great countries were like Nigeria or their leaders were like that of Nigeria that loots their country treasury’s for selfish intereste where would they have gone to,?
