Washington wants race-based visa restrictions

The US is pushing for a new visa system for visitors from the United Kingdom that that allows for special screening of Britons of Pakistani background.

U.S. Seeks Closing of Visa Loophole for Britons – New York Times

American officials, citing the number of terror plots in Britain involving Britons with ties to Pakistan, expressed concern over the visa loophole. In recent months, the homeland security secretary, Michael Chertoff, has opened talks with the government here on how to curb the access of British citizens of Pakistani origin to the United States.

Note how the Times is subliminally whitewashing this policy with its
euphemistic caption. People having legal rights regardless of their ethnic background isn’t a “loophole”. It’s simply equality under the
law.
