Did you mean "regardless" ?
Those visas that now carry the ban [restriction?] were given during the previous
government, yes, under the Obama
administration. In the eyes/regime of the new government under Trump, these visas were granted under a different set of
but they are now deemed unacceptable in the current, new context. Yes, in times of changes, whether political, social or
economic, there will be collateral damage inevitably. One should learn to adapt accordingly; this is the hallmark of humanity: resilience and
adaptability. Any anthropologist will tell one that it is the bedrock of culture, for culture is man's adaptive system.
You may not be aware of this: cigarettes and chewing gum, etc are not to be taken into Singapore as they are considered restricted items. At one time,
men sporting long were not allowed to enter Singapore. Either you accepted a haircut at the airport (or other immigration point), offered gratis by
the Singaporean govt, or you'd have to take the next flight out of the country. Kitaro, the well-known Japanese musician, was denied entry in this
way. Instead of screaming hell or started kicking up a fuss and running a campaign to counter it, he accepted the restriction quietly and took the
next flight out!!
I am not for or against bans or restrictions. And no, I am not Singaporean and neither do I live in Singapore. But if the temporary or 3-month "ban"
of President Trump happens to me, I'll also learn to adapt to the changes accordingly, just like water, when obstructed, will find ways and means to
circumvent and/or adapt to the obstacle. That was what the Tao sage, Laozi, intuited re the innate power of water in the days of ol'.
