Here is a breaking news story that up has the potential to be extremely scary: according to a Canadian television reporter and producer, Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who spoke at the Democratic convention, and whose son died in the military.
CTV reporter Rosa Hwang is reporting on Twitter that she received a statement from Ramsey Talks, and organization for which Khizr Khan was scheduled to speak in Canada tomorrow. Hwang says that Khizr Khan was actually notified late on Sunday evening his travel privileges are being "reviewed." It's unclear what that means exactly.
According to the report, Khizr Khan offered his apologies to everybody who was planning to attend the event, saying that "This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all my fellow Americans who cherish our freedom to travel abroad. I have not been given a reason as to why."
The CTV reporter says that she has reached out to Khizr Khan in order to figure out more about the story, and to determine what exactly Mr. Kahn was told. However, the response was only "I have no comments to make."
This is the first report of such an incident occurring to a US citizen since Trump took office. It's unclear whether or not this revocation is directly tied to Donald Trump's new Muslim ban, or whether it has to do with some other extraordinary circumstance. However, this is an extremely rare occurrence for US citizens, and it's undo and it seems a little bit more than coincidental that this would occur right now.
We are still waiting for more information either from the Canadian news media, Mr. Kahn, or Ramsey Talks.
If any additional information becomes available, we will report it as soon as we receive it. However, at least for now this has the potential to be a very scary new direction the US government is taking.
