Tried to put in Morocco portal as too many are concerned with the ds 5535

most think all from FES are getting this 

 

Form DS-5535, Supplemental Questions for Visa Applicants, standardizes the collection of additional information, including social media usage, from immigrant and nonimmigrant visa applicants "who have been determined to warrant additional scrutiny in connection with terrorism or other national security-related visa ineligibilities."

View a Copy of Form DS-5535

If a consular officer determines that a visa applicant warrants this additional scrutiny, the applicant will be instructed to provide the following information on Form DS-5535:

  • Travel history during the last fifteen years, including source of funding for travel;
  • Address history during the last fifteen years;
  • Employment history during the last fifteen years;
  • All passport numbers and country of issuance held by the applicant;
  • Names and dates of birth for all siblings;
  • Name and dates of birth for all children;
  • Names and dates of birth for all current and former spouses, or civil or domestic partners;
  • Social media platforms and identifiers, also known as handles, used during the last five years; and
  • Phone numbers and email addresses used during the last five years.

these questions could have formally in years past  been asked in an RFE

personally,  you need to answer these questions to keep us all safe and i mean all (me,  the USA and you)

my husbnd is from fes  , omg  ,   we have to wait now  one other year  to answer us  so sad 

No, not necessarily. The author is giving her observation that this trend is heightened among that demographic. This post suggest ways to handle the response to DS-5535 IF you get it. That doesn't mean you're going to get it.

That is what i said

the people in FES seem to think they will instantly get a request to do the DS 5535 / so much so they created a facebook page just for this

this is not so as we have seen posted on here many from Pakistan are getting them also/ the explanaiton here is to let them know reason for the document 

and that it is better than an outright denial

This is the reason

However, the most serious threat posed by the busted cells this year came from a cell that was busted in the northern city of Fez last October.

On Oct. 14, Morocco announced the arrest of 11 people with suspected links to the Islamic State (IS) group, saying their cell was planning attacks in sensitive areas in coordination with an affiliate of IS. Authorities deemed the cell as "extremely dangerous."

During a heavy police raid, firearms, ammunition, knives, gas canisters and chemical products used in bomb-making were seized.

In less than a month, police arrested 6 terror suspects in two separate counter-terrorism operations in Fez, tourist destination and spiritual center.

In a recent interview with Morocco's official MAP news agency, Abdelhak Khiame, director of BCIJ, ascribed the decline in terror cells busting to Morocco's proactive security approach, which is part of a larger multidimensional counter terrorism efforts.

He also warned of the threats posed by returning battle-hardened foreign fighters, noting that Morocco has since 2015 arrested 92 Moroccans returning fighters, including 20 fighters in 2017.

Morocco's counter terrorism bureau estimates the number of Moroccans who have joined terror groups in the

Middle East since the eruption of the conflicts in Iraq and Syria to total 1,660. According to the same estimations, some 596 of those fighters are believed to be killed during the fights.

Morocco adopts strict approach regarding returning fighters. A Moroccan terrorism law criminalizes joining armed groups, therefore returning fighters are systematically arrested.

Morocco was hit by terrorism twice. On May 16, 2003, the Moroccan economic capital of Casablanca was rocked by a suicide bombing, killing 40 Moroccans.

In 2011, terror attack targeted a cafe in Marrakesh's main tourist center of Jamaa El Fna, leaving 17 Moroccans and foreign nationals dead.

Since the first attack, the north African kingdom has directed major efforts to counter terrorism through security operations, religious training and human development.Moro
