Mr. Freeman talked about the ways that the U.S. treatment of foreign travelers to the U.S. impacts the American economy and national security as well as America’s image abroad. The previous month, Discover America Partnership released a survey that concluded the U.S. entry process has created “a climate of fear and frustration that is turning away foreign business and leisure travelers from visiting the U.S., and damaging America’s image abroad.” The Discover America Partnership is an effort led by American business leaders in the travel and tourism industry to improve America’s image around the globe. Mr. Freeman responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. close
