American Immigration Bars Canadian Actor

After weeks of trying to get an important Canadian actor into the United States for an upcoming production, San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre finally gave up and recast locally. “Since the creation the Department of Homeland Security, it has been increasingly difficult, if not impossible, for foreign artists to get into this country. While we tend to hear more often about artists from ‘hostile’ nations, such as Cuba, having the door slammed in their faces, the policy is obviously affecting Canadian artists as well.”
