Poles face extra scrutiny when visiting the U.S.
By Oscar Avila Chicago Tribune

(MCT)

I dont think only Poles have it more difficult in the US -- all other nations have to undergo security checks etc -- including American themselves. So it's exaggeration on the reporter's side.

anyway what i meant is that if i am not welcome to some countries-like USA i can go to other countries which could be or are more interesting than US

So you're referring to the fact that the Polish citizens must have a visa to enter the US then. It's true - it's not a positive thing. But politics is not something positive either..

They will change the immigration law so that it is more convenient for the Polish citizens to travel in the US. When they change it -- that's another question...

I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon...
