Issued the following announcement on Oct. 4.
Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement today:
“Today’s announcement that Poland is being nominated for inclusion in the Visa Waiver Program is fantastic news for Polish-Americans! I’ve been fighting for years to have Poland rightfully included. Over the years I have helped so many families get through the difficult process of acquiring a visa for a Polish family member who wants to come to the US to celebrate a baptism, wedding, or other special event. I am hopeful that this process for including Poland is concluded quickly by the Department of Homeland Security. As co-chair of Poland caucus and one of few Polish Americans in Congress, I will do all I can to work to make sure that this happens.”
