Nigerian communities in the U.S. are shocked by the expanded travel ban imposed on them. Donald Trump, the president of the U.S., has declared immigration visa restrictions on six nations including Nigeria. Nigeria, Sudan, Tanzania, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, and Eritrea are the six nations that will be forbidden from obtaining immigrant visas in certain categories. However, this travel proclamation excludes students, tourists, and refugees. The ban will come into effect beginning February 21. The U.S. justifies the travel ban on account of security issues. Chad F. Wolf, Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, says that “these tailored restrictions will make the U.S. safer and much secure”. The proclamation states that these banned six nations are either “unable or unwilling to improve their information-sharing” or they “presented serious terrorism-related risks”.
