Public Safety Minister says U-S travel ban affecting Canadians
(CP) - Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says U-S President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban on immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries has so far affected 200 people from Canada.
Goodale says the non-Canadian citizens are unable to use their Nexus cards to cross the American border.
The Nexus program allows citizens and permanent residents in both Canada and the U-S to be pre-screened for clearance in a bid to speed up border crossings.
Goodale says Ottawa is working with American officials to ensure ``all Canadians are treated fairly.''
