No Visas Allowed For African Trade Meeting
Stunning, sad, pathetic. This is what happens when undereducated people vote their top choice for the White House.
“Each year, the University of Southern California brings delegations from Africa to meet with business leaders, government officials and others in the U.S. But this year, the African summit has no Africans. All were denied visas. Visa issues are not uncommon for people traveling from African nations. … ‘This year it was 100 percent. Every delegation. And it was sad to see, because these people were so disheartened.’ [event organizer Mary] Flowers estimated that she lost about 100 attendees, including speakers and government officials. The countries affected included Sierra Leone, Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia and South Africa. ‘I have to say that most of us feel it’s a discrimination issue with the African nations,’ said Flowers. ‘We experience it over and over and over, and the people being rejected are legitimate business people with ties to the continent.’
