Visas Needed for U.S. Citizens to Enter the Beltway?

Visas Needed for U.S. Citizens to Enter the Beltway?

"Reports have been leaked that at the top of Congress’s agenda is a proposal to introduce a visa requirement for US citizens to enter and reside in Washington, DC.  Dubbed the Beltway visa and assigned the letters “DC”, the proposed visa requirement has been praised by some as a rare expression of Congressional introspection and an acknowledgment that our elected officials have so alienated themselves from their constituencies that the District of Columbia deserves special status as its own sovereign jurisdiction within the United States." - Ted J. Chiappari and Angelo A. Paparelli, Oct. 28, 2013.
