why they threw out 70,000 bucks?

In a previously undisclosed criminal complaint, Foreign Service officer Michael T. Sestak faces charges of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and bribery in an alleged scheme that investigators say spanned several countries. In some cases, investigators say, desperate Vietnamese paid up to $70,000 each for visas granting legal entry to the United States.

The “co-conspirators” advertised that the charge would be between $50,000 and $70,000 per visa but also that they’d sometimes charge less, State Department investigator Simon Dinits said in an affidavit. “They also encouraged recruiters to raise the price and keep the amount they charged over the established rate as their own commission,” the affidavit said.

Suck! I' m sick of this guy. Why the Vietnamese people want a non-immigrant visa for entering the US? Think about that. In Vietnam, lots VC men have that much money . Why they threw out 70,000 bucks just because for sightseeing or something? Remember that the VC and CC have so tied relationship. Hammer and sickle criminal symbolism are still there.

Q: What does "Nonimmigrant" mean?
A: Essentially, "nonimmigrant" means "temporary" - a visa that allows a foreign national to be present in the U.S. for a limited period of time for a specific purposes, and normally to travel out of and reenter the U.S. during that period to resume that purpose. It may also carry other privileges, like the ability to work or attend school in the U.S., but not all do. Most start with a letter, a dash, and an number ("F-1," H-1B." "L-1A," "P-2") while a few have only a letter ("I"). The right to be present in the U.S. for a limited period of time is the only thing that is common to all nonimmigrant visas.  (Nonimmigrant visa)
