CONGRESSMAN RONALD SINGSON REGAINS U.S. VISA DESPITE HONGKONG DRUG CONVICTION
When Ilocos Sur Congressman Ronald Singson (right) served time in a Hong Kong prison, and faced a lifetime ban from entering the US after his 2011 conviction for drug possession, his greatest fear – aside from letting down his family and his constituents – was not being able to fulfill his daughter’s dream of seeing Disneyland in the US. This prompted Cong. Singson to follow the advice of his father, Chavit Singson (left) to consult with US immigration attorney MICHAEL J. GURFINKEL, whom the Gov. said was “the only one who could help you.” Atty. Gurfinkel sought a special “waiver” for Ronald, which was a meticulous and tedious process, resulting in his tourist visa being issued.
