United States lifts travel ban on Chad citizens

Chad is no longer on the Travel Ban 3.0 list of restricted countries.

Trump said these other seven countries did not make notable or sufficient improvements in their identity-management and information-sharing practices and would remain on the list, the White House indicated in a statement signed by press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The Secretary's report noted that Libya had made progress toward compliance but that lifting of the restriction for that country could not be recommended at this time. US officials also said Chad was unable to adequately share public safety and terrorism-related information with USA officials who screen foreigners seeking to enter the country.

Trump's critics have accused the USA president of imposing unconstitutional measures against citizens of other countries by predominantly targeting Muslim-majority countries.

Chad has been a key US counterterrorism partner in the fight against threats to Africa's Sahel region posed by al-Qaida affiliates like Boko Haram and the newly designated West Africa wing of the Islamic State group.

The US Department of Homeland Security said the removal of the travel restrictions will take effect on Friday.

Rockies star charges the mound and wild brawl breaks out
The brawl likely stems from Tuesday night when Padres outfielder Manuel Margot was hit in the ribs in the 9th inning. That feeling only intensified when Trevor Story was plunked with two outs in the first inning by Perdomo.

"These improvements will improve security for the people of Chad and the United States".

The Department of Homeland Security has maintained that the ban focused on getting countries to improve information on their citizens and cooperation on travel databases, to meet United States security standards. One of the reasons given for Chad's inclusion in the ban was its inability to supply homeland security officials with recent passport samples.

The decision on Tuesday (April 10) was made nearly exactly a month after former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited the country as part of his five-nation trip to Africa in March.

The Supreme Court is expected to decide the legality of Trump's travel bans in the coming months.
