USA Refuses Entry to Yassmin. Take Note, Australia

Immigration, Rundown

Yassmin Abdel-Magied claims that she has been taken into custody by immigration officials and will soon be deported. The claim is yet to be substantiated with US Immigration, but perhaps the USA is on to something.

A woman who belittles the soldiers who died for their country on the day we celebrate their bravery, or who advocates for sharia law is not the type of person any free and liberal democracy should allow to join the public.

Yassmin was on her way to New York City for a conference when she was stopped on her layover in Minneapolis when her passport was allegedly taken from her and she was put into custody. The most likely scenario is that she did not properly apply for her tourist visa, but at least for now it is extremely entertaining.
