4. Lap dances for visas?
Consular officers have the power of God when it comes to issuing visas (I'm an immigration lawyer and see this day in, day out). Their decisions cannot be appealed and they hold people's lives in their hands. They frequently make the most unbelievably cruel statements and often won't even look at the documentation presented to them in the 1 to 3 minutes they spend reviewing the typical person who waits in line hours at a consulate for an interview. So is it really a surprise that these officials are frequently caught up in bribery and corruption scanals. The situation at Citizenship and Immigration Services (the old INS) is even worse.
