I wrote – Bahira Fouda:

Artist Ahmed El-Sakka expressed the crisis faced by his son Yassin by preventing him from traveling to the United States and his inability to complete his studies.

Al-Saqqa published a lengthy post on his son’s tongue, in which he said, “This message has been sent to the administrative treatment of the United States. I have no choice but to talk about it through social media, which is the only platform that contributes to spreading awareness and attracting public attention.”

Yassin added in his letter, “I am a young man, and will never die. Although I passed almost two years ago, that interest was in the performing arts, and in November 2019 I was accepted into school. A wonderful and successful semester in New York .. But on Christmas, I returned to Egypt to spend time with my family. However, I always have a goal that is 4 years of studying, learning and growing better. Before I boarded the plane they suddenly stopped me and the lady at the airport told me I had a problem and I had to solve it.

He continued: “I checked my visa, but the flight took off without me. The next day I went to the embassy, ​​where three Americans started asking me questions, and I answered honestly not knowing what the problem was. After my visa was revoked, they let me go home.”

He continued, “They told me to apply again and take leave, and then I had to work online because of the spread of the corona epidemic, so I decided to take an intermediate year, I still do not know what the problem is. On August 16, 2021, I returned to the embassy to have a smooth meeting, but it was the other way around, and my passport was sent to the administrative process, which continues to carry out my passport administration procedures to this day.

He concluded, “I’m a young man with a dream. I tried everything. Anyone who can fix this situation, if it finally goes away, I know it’s definitely a misunderstanding. America is a country where justice is served. I’m working online now, it’s been going on for a very long time, and it really does affect the future of someone who does no harm. “

It is worth noting that this is the last creation of Ahmed El-Sakka, the artist of the series “The Descendants of Strangers” with the star of Amir Carrara in the month of Ramadan 2021.
