Visa restrictions strike again

The band Incognito is not visiting Atlanta this year:
We did all I could to make this happen, but my band and I were not given the deposits that were agreed and after much toing a froing severe delays to our arrangements and our visa applications has made our deadlines impossible.

American visa requirements are holding hostage all sorts of beneficial social activity. It stops economic, intellectual, and in this case cultural improvement.

Fay and I had a wonderful time hearing Incognito play in Switzerland. They are an extraordinarily international band, having members from several different continents. Maybe they'll have better luck next year getting past the American border control.
