Schumer: Polish pride should be part of immigration reform, just as it is part of Dyngus Day

Monday, at the Dyngus Day parade in Buffalo, U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer launched his plan to make Western New York's Polish American community a priority in the comprehensive immigration reform efforts, by making Poland eligible for the Visa Waiver Program. Poland is one of the only European countries excluded from the visa program that would allow Polish citizens to travel to Western New York for leisure or business more easily. Schumer is one of several senators leading the immigration reform discussions, and in them will fight to include the "JOLT" Act - Jobs Originated Through Launching Travel - that will reform outdated visa laws to cut through red tape that has caused a lag in foreign travel to the U.S.
