There is another case of a Hijabi Moroccan woman who is a Canadian citizen and who was also denied entry to the US But if you read her claim about what happened, she did not make sense So how much of it was real and how much of it was drama we really don't know

No doubt that visitors will be denied admission if it is suspected that they plan to stay in the US and this woman stated that her parents live in Chicago then she stated that she was really heading to Burlington, Vt in-order to buy a toy for a "child that suffers from cancer" It just did not make sense

Was this type of vetting taking place during the Obama years? The answer is yes

Here is a case of a British couple that were denied entry to US in 2012 for posts on Social Media that were deemed as threatening to the US

One final "vetting" is the claim by Ibtihaj Muhammad the US born fencer that her highness was subjected to a two hour session of questions when she was going through customs upon her return from a trip overseas The liar blamed the Trump "Muslim Ban" But the truth came out when she was hounded on social media It turned out that this incident took place in December 2016 when Obama was still the president

I suspect that vetting has been "extreme vetting" for a while and it should be this way otherwise we will end with the likes of Omar Abd al-Rahman who was allowed to enter the US in-spite of the fact that he was a known Islamic terrorist
