    You would have thought that those who speak the Queen's English would have competent reading comprehension skills. I mean, no where in the link does it say that Mr. Khan's travel privileges have been suspended, just a nebulous statement that they are being reviewed, whatever that means.
    And why the hell should they even be "reviewed?" What has he done, besides confront trump, to deserve that?

    I agree. He didn't adequately explain just whom was performing this "review".

    Maybe he got a text message from the President?

    It does not sound very feasible, or legitimate, not even for those morons who under Trumpies first travel ban attempt denied GC holders and to travel into the US..

    Given hat anything is possible these days with the DHS, depending on who's sitting in front of you.. but the whole story does not ring very well at the moment, as being legitimate in the way it's reported.
    It could be that he has received legal advice to remain within the country, for fear of not being allowed back in, should he leave. Who knows?

    Ms. Birdzeyez,

    What does reviewed mean? Basically, what we have here is the Khan guy throwing out some nebulous term, then he declines to explain what he means.

    What we do know is:

    "Representatives with US Citizenship and Immigration Services told Dailymail.com that they were not aware of Khan's case or of any American citizen having their travel privileges put under review by the US government.

    Calls and emails by the site to the Canada Border Services Agency were not answered.

    US Customs & Border Protection officials said the agency does not contact travelers in advance of their travel out of the US, adding that any US citizen with a passport may travel out of the country.
    The agency told Reuters that it would not comment specifically on the Khan case, citing privacy protections.

    There is no US State Department procedure for reviewing 'travel privileges', an agency official told the New York Daily News. Anyone with a valid American passport can enter and leave the country, they added."

    No, I object to needless harassment of US citizens via police state tactics. There isn't a single good reason why Ali should have been detained for any longer than what is routine for a US citizen re-entering the country. The questions about his religion were grossly inappropriate.

    When did details become important? Just think of the narrative, Muslim gold star #antiTrump father has travel privileges reviewed. That's what sells buddy, not details. I mean 2 or 3 threads here and wall to wall coverage. And you want details? Stick to your day job!!

    We have a different story from the Custom officials. And the delay in reporting is a little puzzling.

    Still waiting to see if Mr. Ali and Mancini elect to file charges or a formal complaint. Cuz then everyone would have to lay their cards out on the table.

    I was detained for two hours driving across the border. Three white old ladies coming back years ago from Canada.I was told to get out of my car, they searched the car, questioned us and kept us waiting for I don't know what, and then they allowed us to go through. Sometimes it just happens. I don't think the three of us looked like we had escaped from prison or anything so who knows what they were up to or it was just shits and giggles day for boarder guards.
