Patriot Act blocks Colombian TV journalist Hollman Morris from ever entering United States again

Renowned Colombian journalist Hollman Morris, who the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas reported in June was denied a visa to the United States, has been ruled permanently ineligible for a visa under the "terrorist activities" section of the USA Patriot Act, according to the Associated Press.

Morris, who participated in the Knight Center's annual Austin Forum on Journalism in the Americas in September, was to have returned to the United States as a Nieman Fellow at Harvard.
