Trump Proposes Barring Entry to Visitors From Countries With High Visa Overstay Rates


WASHINGTON—The Trump administration moved ahead Monday to restrict visitor visas to the U.S. for nationals of countries with high rates of overstaying, including potentially barring their entry entirely.

The presidential memorandum orders top cabinet officials to draw up recommendations for nationals of countries that have an overstay rate of 10% or more based on statistics reported by the Department of Homeland Security.
