Visas were issued and denied in great numbers even before the era of “extreme vetting.” This talk gives a brief overview of how visa and refugee decisions are made, and it addresses this serious topic with a very light (dare we say humorous) touch. Bruce Beardsley rose from vice consul to supervisory consul general, overseeing the largest visa operations in the world, taking breaks in his career to run what was then the largest United States refugee processing operation.
