Around the World and the U.S., New Travel Ban Draws Anger, Applause and Shrugs

Different restrictions were imposed on each of the three additions, depending on the threat they were deemed to pose. For example, for Venezuela the ban applies only to visits by certain government officials and their families, while Somalis are barred from emigrating to the United States but not from visiting.Chad, an Ally Against Militants, Asks, “Why Us?”The addition of Chad to Mr. Trump’s travel ban took that country’s government by surprise and bewildered analysts of Central Africa.With a mixed population of Muslims and Christians, Chad has been a longtime American ally in fighting Islamist militants in the region, including offshoots of Al Qaeda and Boko Haram, and its troops took part in a French-led effort to root out Islamist militants from parts of Mali in 2013.In a statement, the government expressed “ incomprehension in the face of the official reasons for this decision, which contrasts with Chad’s constant efforts and commitments in the fight against terrorism.” It called on President Trump to rethink the decision, “which has seriously affected the image of Chad and the good relations maintained by the two countries.”In a report on Chad last year, the State Department said that few Chadians join terrorist groups, and that the country had tightened its borders to impede the movements of militants, but that a financial crisis kept the country from consistently paying police and military salaries, which presented some risk.Matthew Page, who was the State Department’s expert in the region until last year, said that the travel ban for Chad seemed to be “a knee-jerk move, rather than a carefully considered decision.”Experts said there were many steps Chad could take in response that would have a negative impact on the United States, including reducing security protection for employees of the large American embassy. Also at stake are oil exploration plans from companies like Exxon Mobil.Continue reading the main story“This is a very draconian move that could put Americans in harm’s way,” Mr. Page said. “There is no incentive to labeling Chadians soft on terrorism, which they definitely are not.”Human rights activists also expressed outrage.“This makes no sense at all, even from a Trumpian standpoint,” said Reed Brody, a lawyer for Human Rights Watch who has worked extensively in Chad.Victims of a former Chadian president, Hissène Habré, who is accused of torturing and murdering opponents during his rule in the 1980s, regularly travel to the United States to collect humanitarian awards. “Think of all the courageous and dedicated activists who will now be barred from the U.S.,” Mr. Brody said. — DIONNE SEARCEY and JAIME YAYA BARRYCheers From Trump SupportersSupporters of the president’s national security agenda cheered the new policy on Monday. “I’m excited,” said Louis Murray, 52, who campaigned for the president in Boston as part of a group of Catholics for Trump […]

Damp, Dark and Disarrayed, Florida Starts Coping With Irma’s Aftermath

Power to Baptist Health South Florida’s hospitals in Miami-Dade County was sporadic, and each time the main supply failed, some areas would fall dark for eight seconds before the backup systems kicked in, said Wayne Brackin, the hospital group’s chief operating officer.“We have had significant and continuous power outages in most of the facilities, so we’ve been running off generators most of the time,” Mr. Brackin said.Emergency officials were contacting nursing homes on Monday to see whether they needed additional fuel for their backup generators or were having mechanical problems. Some of the state’s assisted living facilities, which also house people who depend on electrical medical equipment, had no backup generators and said on Monday that they were completely without power.Overnight from Sunday to Monday, floodwaters rose around a single-story nursing home in Palatka, about 60 miles south of Jacksonville […]
