Khizr Khan’s Fake News ‘Visa Crisis.’ – Never Happened

News Media Furiously Reported Khizr Khan’s ‘Visa Crisis.’ Then Suddenly, a Funny Thing Happened…

“Within hours, however, Khan’s story began to unravel.

Khan, who was born in Pakistan, has been a U.S. citizen for 30 years. As The Washington Post notes, “U.S. citizens don’t need visas to enter Canada, or even the electronic travel authorizations required of all other foreign visitors there.”

A U.S. Customs and Border Patrol spokesperson has since confirmed that any “travel privilege review” didn’t originate with the agency, as it “does not contact travelers in advance of their travel out of the United States.”

A Canadian government official has also confirmed that their “office of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship is not aware of any restrictions involving Khan,” either.”
