Hey I am not disagreeing with you on that. I have to regularly take connecting flights just to see family whether here or in Latin America. But the United States is home to various groups and it's not just those actually living in those countries that will be making the trip. Especially with a good chunk of us here actually living in the US. Also, didn't it recently become a thing for Colombians to visit the United States easier if they have a relative who is a citizen?
