Re: PAX Accuse WN of Homophobic Discrimination

The claim that an airline would be homophobic in boarding is funny...and sad. Chances are someone involved in the boarding was gay. Not to stereotype, but the airline industry is one of the more gay friendly industries out there.

There is nothing that the US would have to allow immigration threw your airport embassy. No immigration. You just become Tom Hanks wandering an airport/embassy. Probably build a wall if it's the Mexican Embassy.
