Support Legislation to Protect Dual Nationals from Discriminatory Visa Rules

Bipartisan legislation has been introduced in the U.S. Congress that would strip the discriminatory dual nationality provisions contained in the Visa Waiver Program reforms passed into law late last year.  

Europeans of Iranian origin have already been denied visa–free travel to the United States. Because the Visa Waiver Program is based on reciprocity, European and other participating countries may soon place reciprocal restrictions on American citizens. This could jeopardize your right as an American citizen to travel visa-free solely based on your Iranian origin and irrespective of your travel history. 

While Visa Waiver Program needs to be strengthened, singling people out due to their national origin is un-American at its core, does not make America safer, and invites discrimination against American dual nationals.

The Equal Protection in Travel Act of 2016 (S.2449/H.R.4380) is a rational solution to the dual national provisions contained in the reforms rushed through Congress in the aftermath of the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris.  

PAAIA is working hard to support the Equal Protection in Travel Act.  However, members of Congress will not act unless they hear from you. 

Urge your members of Congress to support the
Equal Protection in Travel Act of 2016.

Whether or not Congress passes this legislation is up to you!
