Can foreign tourists help U.S. economy?
Question of the Day
In Las Vegas, where travelers to the Strip traditionally have kept Nevada’s economy afloat, tourism and government leaders are desperate to keep businesses open and create jobs in a state with the nation’s highest unemployment rate.
“The industries affected by tourism are all behind it,” said Rep. Joe Heck, Nevada Republican, who has sponsored a bill in the House that would require shorter visa interview delays, among other measures. “We need the jobs.”
Miss Ocampo, who spent her vacation shopping at upscale boutiques and visiting family in California, said she would be more eager to come back if she knew her business was wanted.
“Everyone wants to visit the Statue of Liberty and Disneyland,” she said.
