The United States said on Thursday it was forcing visa limitations on Ghana, blaming the African nation for not participating in tolerating its nationals requested expelled from the United States.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “has requested consular officers in Ghana to execute visa limitations on specific classifications of visa candidates,” the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said in an announcement.
“Without a fitting reaction from Ghana, the extent of these assents might be extended to a more extensive populace,” the announcement said.
“Ghana has neglected to satisfy its commitments under global law to acknowledge the arrival of its nationals requested expelled from the United States,” said DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said.
“We trust the Ghanaian government will work with us to accommodate these lacks rapidly,” she said.
