HEROIC TRANSLATOR DENIED VISA TO COME TO THE US

Rate this Entry

Fox News (not generally known for sympathetic immigration coverage) reports on an Iraqi translator who has received multiple commendations for taking risks to save the lives of American soldiers. The translator has been denied a visa to live in the US, according to Fox, because of nonviolent actions he took to overthrow Saddam Hussein even though the US government was calling for regime change in Iraq at the time.

    I think you're wrong about Fox not being sympathetic to immigrants. In my viewing experience, it is far more so than CNN. I think you are confusing it's right tilt with a general anti-immigrant tone.
    Remember that Fox is the only TV network that is part of a real international network. In fact, it uses footage filmed here and elsewhere in its broadcasts.

    My story is almost same story for that Iraqi translator Jasim .. but I had my Visa on hold and I left my country Duo the hard situation that I'm facing it could harm me.. So I left my country. Because I cant wait more till I get killed ..
    The US department of State they just don't care about us .. They had Issued Visas for who Attacked US in 11 September.. And we who Fight with the US troops and we who care for United State . We didn't get anything and our life is so horrible and in top of that ... there is no country in world want us and our life in Danger. I don't know what to say.
