Government Cracks Down on Illegal Immigration.

London, Jan 15, 2011. A nine year old British boy was denied a visa to visit Disney World when U.S. Immigration officials ruled he was a national security threat.
British Civil servants Kathy and Edward Francis planned to surprise their grandson Micah Strachan with the holiday of a lifetime to Florida in February.
They were only going to tell Micah about it when they took him to the airport on February 19 for the flight to the US.

They had already spent more than £1,500 (which is $2,380) on plane tickets and had been organizing the trip for months.

Mickey and Minnie are now safe
But this week US Embassy officials denied the schoolboy a visa to enter the US.

They said there was a risk he would not leave the US at the end of his holiday and refused his application under Section 214 (b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

The Obama Administration feared that the child could overstay his visa, and commit terrorist acts in the USA, much like the 911 hijackers did.

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano told us "it's better to be safe than sorry."

Ms. Napolitano would not comment  on whether similar standards would be applied to illegal immigrants from Mexico, or the Middle East.
