Spero: Khizr Khan, an attorney of Pakistani origin who denounced Donald Trump at last year’s Democratic National Convention, canceled a scheduled speech in Canada after being told his “travel privileges are being reviewed,” according to the event organizer Ramsay Talks.
Khan is a Muslim has lived in the U.S. since 1980 and is a naturalized citizen of the United States. So far, it is not clear which authorities had contacted Khan or which travel privileges are being reviewed. U.S. Customs and Border Protection declined to comment about Khan specifically. While it is not clear whether it is the case with Khan, but the federal government does notify people who are losing their membership in the Global Entry program that allows pre-screened travelers to go through customs quickly upon arriving in the country.
