EU Parliament votes to impose visa requirements on USA citizens

The European Parliament

The policy would be a direct "tit-for-tat" response to U.S. President Donald Trump's requiring of visas for U.S. visitors from Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Poland and Romania, all of which are European Union members.

The EU resolution cites rules that require the organization's executive body to take action against the any nations that haven't offered full visa reciprocity.

Colorectal Cancer Rising Among Younger Adults
Still, no health group recommends average-risk young adults get screening tests such as colonoscopy and stool testing. That means more people getting colon and rectal cancers today "are in their most productive years", Siegel said.

The European Parliament has urged the Commission to take reciprocal measures against United States nationals over America's failure to lift visa requirements on citizens of Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Poland and Cyprus. The rules set a two-year warning period before action is taken - and because the initial warning to the US went out in April of 2014, it expired last year. The parliament wants the measure in place "within two months", and the commission is set to report on its progress by the end of June. The European Commission has until the summer to enforce the measure.

Following the parliamentary resolution, the Commission will have to make a legislative proposal for suspension of the visa waiver for Americans, which would have to be further approved by the Parliament and the EU Council.

Another Jewish Cemetery Was the Target of an Alleged Anti-Semitic Attack
When asked if he was speaking for himself or the Foreign Ministry, Nahshon said the statement is "semi-official". After inspecting the cemetery, police determined 100 more headstones were knocked over.

Relations between the US and other countries have already been markedly chilled since the inauguration of President Donald Trump, who in only six weeks has lashed out at Mexico, alienated China, and dismissed the Australian prime minister.

In line with the visa reciprocity mechanism, Australia, Brunei and Japan have lifted their visa requirements for all European Union citizens and Canada has announced it would do so in December.
