The tie ups and fiasco at the U.S. Airports could have been avoided had the incoming travelers from those for mentioned Countries heeded our State Departments admonition concerning the new enrty restrictions. We’re pretty sure that they had to be aware of this restriction well before they booked their flight.. and we would bet our bottom dollar that the airline back in their country of departure made this known to them .We’re surprised that the airlines let them board the plane in the first place..Probably let them board if they didn’t then the passengers would most likely cash in their tickets and the airline would make zero profit.
This massive tie up could have been easily avoided and eliminated by simply having our State Department instructed the FCC and let them take care it by telling the airline carrier that brings these passengers into our port of entry that they risk loosing all landing privileges into the U.S. if they refuse to abide by our rules.
Maybe someone can enlighten us….what if a former Iraqi National a Muslim that has settled in some E.U.Nation and is now traveling to the U.S.with a legitimate French Passport are they detained ,sent back or vetted ? Did the State Department ever take in consideration that somehow this rule can be circumvented?
