Chelsea Manning Says She Was Blocked from Entering Canada

HeadlineSep 26, 2017

Former U.S. Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning says she’s been blocked from entering Canada. On Monday, Manning posted on Twitter a report from Canadian immigration authorities denying her entry. As a reason, it cites her 2013 court-martial conviction and reads, “if committed in Canada this offense would equate to an indictable offense, namely treason.” In response, Manning tweeted, “no walls, no borders, no bans, no deportations, no prisons. #WeGotThis.”
