Which developers, specifically, had to cancel their travel to GDC because of the travel restrictions?

Otherwise they might as well be offering to snow games made by developers stranded on the moon.

Obviously somebody still hasn't read the executive order text. It's not a ban, it's vetting, and plenty of people have come into the country since it's been put in place.

Seriously, stop perpetuating the lie.

Bye Toms I think it was pretty clear no one wants this kinda stuff on there tech news website. I could go into a bunch of detail's but I won't. I almost feel like this article is retaliation against those of us who spoke out on the last politically motivated article. A way of saying we won't have the readers tell us what to and not to publish. I hope this works out in your favor!

Instead of this political news you could have had news about the new GTX 1080 from Gigabyte or perhaps Asus New expedition line of GPU's or perhaps even Sk Hynix new 2017 plans to release 10nm - Dram

but instead you choose more political news so finished good luck if I do come back it will be with add-blocking software. I like to show your sponsors that I no longer support your website. Until things change!

I for one support the reporting of real world issues like this. People who prefer to actively ignore reality or present "alternative facts" are more than welcome to leave.

Sometimes the world of technology and politics overlap. This story was promoting an underground tech event.. how is that not relevant? Excuse you for not being able to handle the overlap with politics.

What we had before Trump was extensive vetting. What we have now is a ban.

What's this then?

Sec. 3. Suspension of Issuance of Visas and Other Immigration Benefits to Nationals of Countries of Particular Concern.
(c) ...pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), I hereby proclaim that the immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens from countries referred to in section 217(a)(12) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12), would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and I hereby suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of such persons for 90 days from the date of this order...

Sec. 5.
(b) ...prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual's country of nationality... (aka Christians as these are countries where the majority are Muslim)
(e) ...admit individuals to the United States as refugees on a case-by-case basis, in their discretion, but only so long as they determine that the admission of such individuals as refugees is in the national interest -- including when the person is a religious minority in his country of nationality facing religious persecution...

And what about all the people who were turned away or detained in airports since it came into affect? The existing vetting process is already extensive and can take as long as two years

FYI
"with all do respect" -> "with all due respect"
"with an once of intelligence" -> "with an ounce of intelligence"
"knows its has" -> "knows it has"
