My husband has some very interesting hobbies, and through him, I've learned to fly and earned my pilot's license. Together, we fly all over the United States.

John Henrik Clarke

You do get certain publications in the States where, if things don't go according to plan, they flip the story and it becomes very negative.
We need to know who's in the United States. We need to know everyone who's in the United States that comes in here from a foreign country.
