The Olympics – Yet Another Victim of America’s Broken Immigration System
أكتوبر شنومكسند، شنومكس
Newspapers are reporting today that during the official Q & A session following the Chicago bid for the Olympic Games, I.O.C. member, Syed Shahid Ali, from Pakistan, asked President Obama how smooth it would be for foreigners to enter the United States for the Olympic Games. He added that doing so can sometimes be “a rather harrowing experience.”
While this I.O.C. member’s concerns raise a red flag about the need for a change in our immigration policies, a litany of voices have been warning for years that the U.S. is slowly adopting an anti-immigrant and visitor policy that is harming business, higher education and families.
While the I.O.C. questioned Brazil on combating crime, and Japan was questioned for a lackluster proposal that led it to claim the country’s plan was environmentally friendly. The U.S. was pushed hardest on its immigration policies making it clear that the broken immigration system has officially become a major concern in the eyes of the world.
قال الرئيس أوباما في اجتماع حديث للبيت الأبيض إنه يؤمن بإصلاح شامل للهجرة وأنه على جدول أعماله. لكن خيبة الأمل الأخيرة تثبت أن إصلاح الهجرة ليس مجرد قضية محلية أمريكية ملحة ، بل قضية دولية أيضاً.
