On the background of the emergence of serious problems for Russians wishing to obtain a U.S. visa, citizens of several countries may face even greater difficulties, if going to the United States. The administration trump’s plans to introduce visa sanctions against the four countries.

Unlike a visa-a diplomatic conflict with Russia, in this case the “feet” of sanctions grows from a desire to protect the US from illegal immigrants. Under the restrictions of the visas will go to those States that refuse to take back its citizens illegally penetrated into American soil.

Which countries will suffer most from the visa sanctions are not specified. However us media, citing the Department of homeland security indicate that in the four can get to Cambodia, Sierra Leone, Eritrea and Guinea. Their “sin” is that they persist when it comes to the reception of his subjects deported from the United States or do not accept them or acceptable long delays. Most recently, in July, in the USA the number of countries that are treated in this context to the “recalcitrant” were assessed in 12 countries, among which there were China and Cuba. So it is not clear why, out of dozens, chose four aforesaid countries. It is not clear who falls under the visa sanctions-whether all citizens are “at fault” countries, or only some part.

Such Washington’s actions fit the logic of pre-election statements trump, who accused Democrats Obama and Clinton that have not taken steps to put pressure on countries unwilling to cooperate on issues of combating illegal migration. A year ago, Donald trump said, “There are at least 23 countries that refuse to take back his people after the was ordered to leave the United States, including people who committed serious crimes”.

In the past the only two countries that have faced the American visa sanctions in connection with the unwillingness to take their migrants-illegal immigrants: Guyana (2001) and Gambia (2016).

Meanwhile, Donald trump has made another statement, relevant to the migration issue. As you know, he’s been nursing the idea of building the border wall designed to protect the U.S. from illegal immigrants. Speaking to his supporters in Arizona, the President threatened that if will not be allocated to this project, he signs the budget. And this can lead to the fact that Federal agencies, States will suspend their activities. But trump is not afraid: “Even if we have to close the governmental agencies we will build the wall!”
