Prime Minister David Cameron has been urged to challenge the United States after a British family of 11 was stopped from visiting Disneyland in Los Angeles, it has emerged.
Mohammed Tariq Mahmood, from Walthamstow, London, was preparing to board a flight with his brother and nine of their children on December 15, but officials from US Homeland Security stopped them as they queued in the departure lounge at Gatwick Airport.
The family, who spent thousands of pounds on the trip, were then told their authorization to travel had been canceled.
Mahmood said no reason was given as to why they could not board the flight, despite their clearance to travel under the Visa Waiver program, which authorizes travel to the US for up to 90 days without a visa.
It’s absolutely disgusting that a British Muslim family were denied their dream holiday to Disneyland. This world is disgusting.
