  Are You Good-Looking Enough To Get Into The US
Current US law already treats models as a special person. Foreign models of "distinguished merit and ability" can obtain a H-1B visa to stay in the United States for up to six years. It's the same coveted visa granted to engineers, doctors, mathematicians, scientists, nurses and such. Only 65,000 of these visas are granted every year. The fashion industry complains the visas are too expensive and that the high-tech and health care industry gobbles them up first.

The new legislation proposes a separate immigration category for beauty models and sets aside 1,000 visas each year for them.

In reforming immigration laws, Congress is creating a velvet rope at the border that so long as your 'Look' is good enough, in you come. I can'y wait till 'heroin chic' is out and 'sucide warrior' is the in fashion. One could only wonder what kind of 'models' they'll be importing into the US.
