      Every country on the planet should respond in kind to any American citizen trying to enter. Once the Yanks start getting delayed at borders the message will get home. Chump is a complete moron who was only voted in because he is hated less than Hilary.

      The process of checking the mobile phones, tablets and laptops of visitors to the USA was started a few years ago. It has been dramatically stepped up with the current administration.

      Secretary Kelly:

      Please reject any proposal to require visa applicants, refugees, or other foreign visitors to provide passwords for online accounts, including social media, in order to enter the United States.

      Such a requirement would violate human rights, create digital security risks, and undermine U.S. industry. It would chill the speech and behavior of people around the world.

      Log-in access to social media accounts provides intimate information on a person as well as their connections. If you use a social media account to log in to other websites, it may also create a detailed dossier that broadly maps your entire digital life.

      The requirement will disproportionately impact low-risk travelers since terrorists and criminals will simply evade these requirements by using different accounts and devices. U.S. citizens will also feel the impact, as other countries will almost certainly follow suit.

      Secretary Kelly, we urge you to protect human rights and reject the collection of passwords for entry into the United States.

      If it is that dangerous to go there, I don't think I'll bother - not that it has any attraction anyway.
      They are gettin more paranoid that Russia ever was.
