With Speech by Proxy, Iranian Filmmaker Condemns Trump's "Inhumane" Travel Ban

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Boycotting the Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday evening, Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi took the opportunity of his acceptance speech to condemn President Donald Trump's "inhumane" travel ban and remind viewers that the power of film is that "they create empathy between us and others, an empathy that we need today more than ever."

From a person who does not travel, why is a travel ban inhumane, are those countries of origin inhumane, hence the need to escape them. Then logically those countries are inhumane based upon the behaviour of humans there, so why accept them else where.
If you do no fix your country, do not expect others to do it for you nor expect them to take you in, as it is unlikely you would strive to protect the country you have now gained access to.
So define the inhumanity of not being allowed to be a tourist to a specific location. Now if the problems in specific countries are caused by other countries, should not access from those countries be banned ie the USA being banned from accessing the entirety of the Middle East for all the problems the USA has caused (now that would actually be humane).
