Interview Waiver Program
Interview Waiver Pilot Program
Under a new initiative, in select circumstances, qualified foreign visitors who were interviewed and thoroughly screened in conjunction with a prior visa application may be eligible to renew their visas without undergoing another interview.
This pilot program permits consular officers to waive interviews for qualified nonimmigrant applicants worldwide who are renewing their B1/B2 visa within 48 months of the expiration of their previously held visa, and within the same classification as the previous visa.
Our embassies and consulates have been instructed to begin implementing this pilot program immediately.
This pilot does not entitle any applicant to a waiver of personal appearance. Consular officers will retain the authority to interview any applicant who they determine requires a personal appearance.
Despite the requirement in legislation that all visa applicants be interviewed, the Obama Regime has issued instructions to American diplomatic personnel to violate the law. There is no need to end the interview program. The only complaint is that visa interviews are an inconvenience to applicants. As if their convenience is of any concern to the United States, especially given that none of the 9/11 terrorists were interviewed before their visas were issued. Obama is implementing Visa Express again. And the beneficiary will be Al Queda. There are 177,286,000 Muslims in India. Neo-cons tell us only a small percentage of Muslims worldwide are radical and support Al Queda, but support for suicide bombing among even American Muslims is strong.
What is it in India? Wikileaks tells us: Of those 177,000,000 a minority, but then that is a large population to start with.
7. (C) Separatism and religious extremism have little appeal to Indian Muslims, and the overwhelming majority espouse moderate doctrines. While the conservative Sunni political organization the Jamaat Islami (JI) and the Deobandi sect espouse Islamic chauvinism, and some of their members express admiration for Osama bin Ladin, their leaders usually do not express such views in public, and there is little to indicate that they have provided anything more than rhetorical support to terrorists. Attacks by Hindu extremists on innocent Muslims and periodic bouts of bloody communal rioting, have led a small number of Muslims to cross the line from sympathizing with violence to engaging in terrorism. Some Kashmiri terrorist groups argue that only attacks outside of Kashmir will shake the Indian state and convince the GOI to withdraw. Members of these two small slivers of the Muslim community provide recruits for groups prone to acts of violence and terrorism, many of which are supported from outside India. The numbers are small, especially outside of Kashmir, but they remain capable of periodic bombings and other acts of violence.
8. (C) Indian Islamic groups that are extreme in their views and activities include
Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) Jamiat-ul-Mujahideen Marqazi-Jamiyat-e-Ahal-e-Hadith (MJAH) Muslim United Liberation Front of Assam (MULFA) Muslim Security Council of Assam (MSCA) Muslim Volunteer Force (MVF) Muslim Liberation Army (MLA) Muslim Security Force (MSF) Islamic Sevak Sangh (ISS) United Muslim Liberation Front of Assam (UMLFA)
And India has its own home-grown Muslim terrorist problem, let us not forget the 2011 bombings in Bombay.
There is also a complaint that appearing at interviews is too expensive for aliens. Is that any concern of Americans given what happened on 9/11? Is the minor costs and inconvenience a small price to pay for an alien so that we can make an informed decision on that alien's potential threat to America?
In any event, this is just another impeachable offense from a lawless regime.
