"Admitted at New York, N.Y., on November 15, 1939, under Paragraph 2, Section 3, Immigration act of 1924, for 7 months."This section, as I understand it, refers to a visitor's visa. We shall, therefore, be very grateful to you if you will clarify the situation for us.
(Mrs.) Marjorie Page Schauffler
Opa has a visitor's visa. All signs point to it- and now Mrs. Hanstein from the AFSC is going to write to the INS to clarify. I did think this might not have been the best thing- because sometimes it is better to ask for forgiveness than permission, right? (Where did that saying come from?) Oh well- soon enough the INS will have Opa's expiring visitor's visa on their radar and Opa and the AFSC will need to do some quick work.
These letters were written May 7th, 1940. All you history buffs out there know that the invasion of the Netherlands begins in three days. I have a feeling Opa's passport renewal process will be complicated- if he tries at all.
