The outgoing administration of U.S. President Donald Trump, a president that was impeached and recently defeated announced a radical new plan on Monday that could require tourist and business travelers from African countries to pay a bond of as much as $35,000 to visit the United States.
The U.S. State Department said the final rule, which takes effect Dec. 24 targets countries whose nationals have higher rates of overstaying B-2 visas for tourists and B-1 visas for business travelers.
Trump, who lost a re-election bid earlier this month, made restricting immigration a central part of his four-year term in office. President-elect Joe Biden, a Democrat, has pledged to reverse many of the Republican president’s immigration policies, but untangling hundreds of changes could take months or years.
This latest radical immigration rule is part of Trump’s ongoing effort to ban Africans from entering the United States. Through his failed four years of administration characterized by corruption and incompetence, he has remained preoccupied with policies designed to reduce Africans from entering the US.
