US CITIZENS GET TO SEE WHAT IMMIGRANTS GO THROUGH

Rating: 13 votes, 5.00 average.

I'm talking, of course, about the whole passport mess. The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative now requires showing a passport if one is arriving from Canada or Mexico by air. The State Department had three years to prepare for the increase in applications that this new requirement would require. Now one can make a decent argument why this requirement is necessary, but that's no excuse for the State Department to now take an average of 4 months to approve an application. I had to laugh when I heard Lou Dobbs griping about this last night, however. I would have presumed that Dobbs, the isolationistic xenophobe, would have preferred Americans never had any contact with the rest of the world.



Yesterday, the House Foreign Affairs Committee held hearings to get to the bottom of things.
