ABSTRACT
The United States may have been built on welcoming the tired, poor, huddled masses, but now the door is slamming even on the educated elite. Since September 11, 2001, the U.S. has introduced a series of measures aimed at better screening and monitoring of foreigners, going so far as to register males between 16 and 45 from "countries of concern" (chiefly Arab, Muslim and Middle Eastern nations, as well as North Korea and parts of sub-Saharan Africa). Even European passport-holders accustomed to sailing through immigration are increasingly facing suspicion and, often, outright hostility when they arrive. The U.S. is in danger of further alienating some of its closest allies. For years, some 27 countries, most of them in Western Europe, enjoyed what is known as the Visa Waiver Program, which allowed their residents to visit the U.S. on business or pleasure for up to 90 days without a visa. Beginning October 1, 2003 all Europeans must possess a new machine-readable digital passport if they want to enter the United States without a visa. Otherwise, they must obtain a visa--in person--from a U.S. Embassy or consulate.
