The Trump Administration overturned its recent decision to deny the visas of a female team of Afghani students participating in a world robotics competition.
The drama of the school girls’ denied visas was widely covered by mainstream media. Even though Afghanistan is not included in the recent travel ban on six Muslim-majority countries, their visas for the competition were twice rejected. At the same time, visas were granted for girls traveling to the U.S. from countries subjected to the travel ban, such as Gambia.
Had they not been granted entry, they would have had to participate via Skype as their robot competed in the event.
