11. Our nephew, who has one of the dystrophic
conditions is barred from visiting us here. The reason given was that he was likely to stay and try to use our medical resources. (Same reason they use to ban anyone disabled from entering the US)

Like he'd really do that coming from a country where not only is his medical care good and paid for but so is his wheelchair, the powerlifts in his home, a medical attendant, the power doors and the van to transport him.
