I wrote previously about the American visa application process and how my inlaws tried to get an appointment for an interview for 4 months. Well, after writing to my really excellent congressman McGovern, I was able to secure them an interview which was this morning.
Sadly, their visas got denied today for the age old reason of America doesn't trust brown people to abide by the law and leave when their visa is up. I live in a country which robs a 72yr old retired policeman and his family of the joy of watching his grand daughter's first year. They have impeccable records, advanced degrees, speak English, plenty of money in the bank, and they own valuable property. Why?
Needless to say, we're thoroughly demoralized, angry and shocked. Does anyone know if there is any recourse we can take?
