Guam - The governor is still trying to determine the overriding concerns that the Department of Homeland Security has with including China and Russia in the parole visa waiver final rules for Guam and the CNMI. During his recent trip to Washington, DC, Governor Eddie Calvo detailed meetings they had with the U.S. State Department andDepartment of Defense in an effort to garner support for the extension of the visa waiver program.
He said, "We have to start triangulating what the issues are and really we're concerned because the technical issues aren't there.
