For all you know the dad could be in the no fly list for known affiliations.... but all you overly pc liberals need something to cry about.

Are you pc bro?

So why did they not give that reason? Also, grow up.

I need more information here.

I do think the past year has seen a significant increase in open hostility towards muslims and other immigrants in the US. Trump is not president, but he and other candidates have fanned flames and fed fears that concerns are warranted.



Doesn't the US seem like the weakest country in the world?



Donald Trump? Seriously? That's hilarious. Is this a real publication or another British rag? Because, obviously, Donald Trump has nothing to do with this and they're just using his name to add a dash of sensationalism.

Also, it's kind of amazing how many people do not know the difference between "no reason" and "unknown reason". There almost certainly was a flag of some sort. My guess would be that a name matched up in the database, which is unfortunate. I hope they can get it resolved and the process certainly needs to be refined but it's a very daunting task to monitor all incoming travel into the US.

Also, and I'm rather surprised I need to say this, but the safety and security of citizens > someone's vacation plans.

I can understand it though, in my country alone, both Murder and rape is common news every week since the invasion of Muslim refugee's. They even vandalize and beat people up in the streets, burning cars and causing riots because they lack the patience to wait 20 min until the dining hall opens. They even shit on the floor and complains about how dirty everything is afterwards, expecting us to clean up after them. Death-treats and stalking kids at schools and bitching, bitching and bitching about luxury and shit. Trust me, all this have been uncommon in Norway. out of 20 rapes, 1 of them is ethnic-Norwegian. I don't think US realize how violence and crime are rapidly increasing even among the most peaceful nations in Europe and that US have increased it's security.

I read an article about Norway's approach of saying, "You have your culture, but we have our laws and to live here have to obey laws".

In particular the tretament of women.  Some cultures view women as property still and have very backwards views on domestic violence and rape.  I firmly think should take classes to learn that social interactions differ and women are equal.





Last time I checked, Obama is still the President, not Trump... so why is Trump getting bashed in this story and elsewhere when he has absolutely nothing to do with the US government's security policies and procedures that are in place RIGHT NOW?

Edit:  Oh, and by the way... if the family was stopped from flying to the US because one of their names matched a name that came up on a government "no-fly list", then the liberals in this country have gotten exactly what they asked for.

With more militaristic firepower than the next three nations combined and the most diverse culture. When you combine so many cultures into one, it tends to create social issues- especially if one of the newer cultures brings outdated social infrastructures and they get upset when no one else is following it. 

 

The weakest country in the world? Really? You have countries in the Philippines that have laws stating Chinese citizens are second class. You have  countries in Asia that openly brainwash their citizens and prevent them from leaving to another country. You have countries in Africa that are unofficially ruled by homicidal maniacs that murder thousands. You have countries in the Middle East that harbor organizations that kidnap tourists and reporters and cut their damn heads off on camera so their families can watch.

 

And the United States is weak because it barred a family from its vacation for undisclosed reasons? There are so many worse things that could have happened, but all that happened was some were denied entry into a country that is on high alert. A country that previously lost over 2000 lives and a national treasure for not being careful enough.

Sounds like nonsense scaremongering.

I don't think US homeland security have any authority at Gatwick at all.

Do you understand how international terror watch lists such as the "no-fly" list work?  They don't wait for people whose names pop up on these lists to land inside the US and then tell them to turn around and take the next flight home...

Sure, Trump and other Republican candidates for POTUS are to blame for the increase in anti-Muslim sentiments in the Western world over the past year.

It's got absolutely NOTHING to do with the attacks in Paris (TWICE over the past year) and in San Bernadino CA, among others all over the globe, by people of the Islamic faith who are either linked to extremist groups like ISIS or sympathize with radical Islamic viewpoint.

And it also has absolutely NOTHING to do with the clash of cultures that is currently going on in Europe as the 7th century meets the 21st century with millions of migrants fleeing dozens of nations across Africa and the Middle East flooding the Eurozone and demanding that their host nations cater to their every whim.
