Aymaran professor denied entry into U.S.

Waskar Ari is an Aymarran professor who was hired to teach at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. The U.S State Department is subjecting him to extensive background checks, and effectively denying his entrance, due to what they claim to be "derogatory information" on Ari, which they refuse to disclose.
