As part of a wider push for new ways to curb immigration, Pres, Trump and his top aides are weighing rules designed to clamp down on countries whose nationals overstay short-term visitor visas.
 
According to WSJ, the effort would target nationals of countries with high overstay rates of such visas, which include Nigeria, Chad, Eritrea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. 
 
To put those countries “on notice,” the U.S. as part of a new rule, would tell the countries’ governments that if rates don’t reverse, then future visas could be shorter or harder to get.
 
Ultimately, nationals from countries with high overstay rates could be barred entirely. 
 
The White House is also seeking to push through other rules that would tighten student and investor visas, and it is pursuing preventing immigrants from coming or becoming citizens if they are likely to use publicly funded benefits.
