World Travel may soon be Limited

In the cat and mouse game of tit-for-tat, the Trump administration continues to cut off one country after another from visiting the U.S. At first it was natives from Iran, Libya, Yemen and other Muslim countries. Next , the administration cut off visas for certain government officials and their families from Venezuela. Then came Cuba, and last week it was Turkey. Some countries, like Turkey, are fighting back.  After the U.S. said it would stop issuing visas to Turkish citizens, the country of Turkey cut off all visas for Americans. So, for those of us who fly Turkish Airlines through Istanbul, forget about spending a day or two in Istanbul because you can no longer leave the airport premises. The U.S. also cut off visas to citizens of Cuba, when we withdrew much of our Embassy staff due to health concerns. The question now is, which country will be next? Surely there must be ways to resolve international disputes or disagreements other than to bar citizens of certain countries from visiting, but, could it be that this administration looks for excuses to cut off visas and thereby cut off foreigners from entering our country "and taking American jobs?" In the view of this Houston immigration lawyer and Miami immigration lawyer, It will be interesting to see if this pattern continues in the weeks to come.
