Filipinos From Pampanga Town Automatically Denied U.S. Visas

AC’s Pol Pinoy enroute to Mexico

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is no secret that U.S. President Donald Trump has a beef with Mexicans, evident not only by his passion to build a border wall, but also with his policy of denying U.S. travel visas for Mexican nationals.

Alas, a computer glitch at the U.S. Embassy in Manila now automatically denies visa applications from Filipinos who hail from or reside in Mexico, a town in the Philippine province of Pampanga.

It is already difficult for most Filipinos to obtain a visa to visit America, but having one’s address or hometown listed as Mexico, Pampanga makes it almost impossible to get one.

The U.S. Embassy in Manila is still trying to correct the glitch that automatically deletes all visa applications bearing the key word “Mexico.”
