ECONOMY TAKES TOLL ON FOREIGN VISITOR NUMBERS

Rate this Entry

The Washington Post reports on the worries. I originally had a tenth idea on my list of stimulus proposals and that dealt with visitor visas. I wanted to push to revitalize the immigration bonds tool that consular officers have available for prospective visitors to the US. Figuring out precisely how to do this would be tough and making sure that the public understands what it is and is not would be a challenge. But perhaps it's time to start that discussion.

    How about some change in the stupid visa regime at the consular posts? My parents are victims of the stupidity endemic at these consulates. They are retires, well off and travel the world for leisure in their golden years.
    Despite traveling all over Europe, Aus, NZ and Asia the past few years, they have been rejected travel visas to the US repeatedly. Why? for having alleged immigrant intent, because they are retired and I am a GC holder and supposedly they are just looking for an opportunity to rush to the US and settle with me here.
    The world is in recession and it doesn't do the US or this economy any good by turning away people who have the good intention and the means to come visit and spend money.
    I understand that visa officers have a lot of pressure and very little time to decide on travel visa applications, but this stupid 'one size fits all approach' has got to go.

    The US missed a big opportunity when the dollar value was lower during the past few years rejecting visas from Korea, Argentina and China (can someone tell me how Argentina is associated with Islamic terrorists?) with a dumb rule called Section 214(b) a relic of the 1950s. Now with the dollar value increasing it will pay a heavy penalty in declining tourist numbers and a plunging economy...perfect Mark Kirkorian's vision for America although he is seething at the fact that more foreign students are coming to the US..but no, he wont be protesting budget cuts hurting Americans students now..his racist goal is to keep non-whites out of the country!
