USA imposes visa restrictions on Ghana

February 01, 2019 / ANI

The United States, on Thursday (local time), imposed visa restrictions on Ghana for a "lack of cooperation in accepting their nationals ordered removed from the United States." "Ghana has failed to live up to its obligations under international law to accept the return of its nationals ordered removed from the United States," Kirstjen Nielsen, the Secretary of Homeland Security, outlined. "As a result, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has ordered consular officers in Ghana to implement visa restrictions on certain categories of visa applicants. Without an appropriate response from Ghana, the scope of these sanctions may be expanded to a wider population," a statement released by the US Department of Homeland Security read.
