Bloggings: The four horsemen of American immigration policy: Idiocy, Ignorance, Intolerance and Insanity. Roger Algase

Rate this Entry

A recent article in TIME magazine describes how America is keeping well heeled Brazilian tourists away by our insane visa application procedures. Brazilians, inspired by their country's economic boom, are trying to come here in great numbers to spend big bucks which could do a lot to create badly needed tourist industry jobs and revenues. Because there are only four American consulates in a country larger than the US, many people have to travel hundreds of miles for an interview. Because of volume, average interview waiting periods are as long as 141 days!


Just one more example of an American immigration policy driven by prejudice, fear, false propaganda and xenophobia gone wild. I would call it the Four Horsemen: Idiocy, Ignorance, Intolerance and Insanity.

    US visit visa interview is a very defective process. 214(b) has only led to development of little hitlers nad has turned US into a Nazi state.
    My question is "Is 214(b) valid in this century?". Any legal provision which is adhock, subjective and no option for judicial review is unconstitutional.
    All legal professionals and travel trade members should petition congress/senate and supreme court.
    All have civil rights. Foreigners do have civil rights. A country that denies civil rights foreighner is not democratic. US is not democratic.

    I could not agree more with T. V. Krishnamurthy's comment that foreigners have civil rights. Too many American consular officials and immigration officers behave as if people without US citizenship do not fully qualify as human beings.
