It is Oscar season and the Academy Awards ceremony is in February.  Here is a not-so-good Oscar story.

The Daily Beast reports that Mexican actor Jorge Antonio Guerrero Martínez, who stars in “Roma,” might miss the Oscars because U.S. officials have denied his visa requests. Guerrero reportedly has applied for a U.S. visa on three occasions, even giving officials a letter from producers of “Roma,” which has been nominated for Best Picture and many other Oscars.  The letter attested to how Guerrero had been invited to industry events and appearances in the U.S.

Last year, a Syrian documentary producer was initially denied a visa due to the Trump administration's travel ban but eventually won an appeal of the denial and was issued a visa.

I just find these things so interesting, Especially considering how they consider and vet the applications. I wonder if they're are any idealogical aspects of immigration.
