A day after some international media reported that Sri Lankans were among stranded passengers at US airports because of President Trump’s ban on immigration, the US Embassy in Colombo said that “Sri Lanka is not among the seven countries listed in the recent Executive Order suspending entry into the US".
President Trump signed an Executive Order temporarily suspending entry into the United States of individuals from seven countries [Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen] under section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

Trump's agenda is to stop emigration....Let's face it!! It will be done in away that people will get tired of the hassle and not wanting to go to US.

There's no need for the USA Embassy to tell us that SL is not in the list of 7 banned countries for entry into USA.We want to know why US Immigration has stopped SL nationals with valid visas from entering USA .
