Only a political solution can save Guyana

May 29, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Ravi Dev’s quite stimulating article, “Who to deconstruct?” was a relevant addition to the collection of ideological thoughts on the political solutions for Guyana.

Seeram, Gail@Go2Lawyer.com It is erroneous to believe that once you have a B-1/B-2 tourist visa or newly issued immigrant visa that you will have no problems entering the United States.  A visa to the United States gets you to the port of entry (New York, Miami, etc.) but the examining Customs […]
