Can I travel to the U.S. without a visa?

The immigration process in the U.S. is becoming increasingly complex. The current administration is creating additional hurdles for foreign nationals from certain countries who wish to enter the U.S. However, for citizens and nationals of other countries, the process is comparatively simple.

Unfortunately, a popular hotel chain violated this right and wrongfully reported guests within its hotel chains. These guests did not do anything wrong. The hotel completed the reports as part of a business policy.

Permanent residents can face serious consequences for voting
