Fortress America?

[JURIST] The US State Department and the Department of Homeland Security have launched a new website providing official information on visa policy and procedures. Visit UnitedStatesVisas.gov. The quote from President Bush currently featured on the website front page is jarring and somewhat telling, although perhaps not intentionally so: "America is not a fortress; no, we never want to be a fortress. We're a free country; we're an open society."
