President Donald Trump has imposed visa sanctions against four countries – Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea and Sierra Leonne – for refusing to accept their citizens deported from the U.S, Yes I’m Right reports.
The State Department has been alerted by the Department of Homeland Security that the four countries have denied or unreasonably delayed the acceptance of its nationals convicted of crimes here.
In a statement, DHS Acting Secretary Elaine Duke said “International law obligates each country to accept the return of its nationals ordered removed from the United States.”
“Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone have failed in that responsibility,” she added.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas Homan said foreign governments’ refusal to take back their dangerous criminal citizens bring harm to the American public.
In March 2012, an illegal immigrant murdered five people in San Francisco after his home country Vietnam refused to take him back, forcing ICE to release the individual.
