US Homeland Security Recognizes Taiwan

Finally some sense is being made in the US; the Department of Homeland Security will now allow Taiwanese citizens entering the US to list Taiwan as their country of citizenship instead of China.

Thanks to US Representative, Howard Berman, this has been brought about. Berman, a long time supporter of Taiwan, got the change for the Global Entry Program and the I-94 entry form.

All we can say is thanks to Berman and those who helped him; and to others it is about time. Now we need to get working on changing that stupid misomer, "Chinese Taipei." Do we insist that Mexicans represent themselves as "Spanish Mexico City?" etc.
