Disneyland-Bound Family Seeking Entry to US Under Visa Waiver Program Barred

Disney

The Washington Post reports that a British Muslim family seeking to enter the US under the visa waiver program in order to visit Disneyland was told -- at the departure lounge of Gatwick airport in London -- that orders from Washington DC would prevent them from visiting the happiest place on earth.

"The only explanation I can think of is that my name is Mohammed," stated Mohammed Tariq Mahmood, one of the travelers. 

We can likely expect more visa waiver program stories to hit the news in 2016.
