MSNBC’s Katy Tur Blames Travel Ban for Female Afghan Robotics Team’s Visa Issues

Monday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur discussed the all-female robotics team from Afghanistan that President Donald Trump eventually stepped in and allowed in the country after their visas were denied.

Tur blamed the group’s denial on the travel ban which only prohibits travel from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — not Afghanistan.

“Among the teams are six girls from Afghanistan, who nearly didn’t make it after their visa applications were denied not once, but twice,” Tur explained. “The travel ban, after all.”
