Philippines bans US senators, mulls new visa rules for Americans

Philippines has banned two US senators, Richard Durbin and Patrick Leahy, from entering the country and threatened further travel restrictions on Americans, in response to Congress’ backing of a jailed government critic. The US lawmakers were behind a provision passed by Congress, which seeks to block any Philippines official involved in the detention of Senator Leila De Lima from entering the US.

A country has the right to ban any non-citizen from entering its territory. I would feel the same way even if I liked the senators who were banned.

Who would want to visit a country that shoots people for smoking pot? Duterte is insane.

Dictators gonna dictate. I don't see any problems with this, tbh. Countries should be allowed to decide who is allowed within their borders.
