I totally symphathise with Shri. mumbairesident , really it is shameful that our elderly parents have to go through this ordeal just to be able to visit their children. I think it is inhuman and I am sure many of you will agree. This makes me think that what is the use of living in a country where my parents cannot even visit me ? If they want to then they will have to go through this horrible process with the fear of rejection always at the back of their minds.
My in-laws visa was recently rejected and we are feeling so guilty about having to make them go through this insulting process. They were not dying to come here , we only wanted them to visit and the visa officer says that you will not come back without looking at the documents properly even and speaks rudely to them and asks them insulting questions. These guys are taking advantage of the power that has been given to them, using it to their will to grant visas as per their whims and fancies. And we say US policies are fair & free ? I think there should be some sort of protest against such inhuman treatment .
