It seems that your country has suspended all traveling...
I have a bit of bad news: it seems that your country has suspended all traveling privileges on passports that have issued by your government and our state department has revoked the visa that was going to allow you to enter into the United States that's it in a nut shell, while you were in the air there was a military coup in your country now most of dead were members of the presidential guard they were attacked in the middle of the night they got it all on GHN there were very few civilian casualties so I'm sure your family is fine,
[Frank slams an apple on the bag of potato chips]
No more Krakhozia! New government, revolution! So all the flights in your country has been suspended indefinitely and the new government has sealed all the borders which means your passport and visa are no longer valid so currently you are a citizen of nowhere, even if we could get you new papers we couldn't process them until the United States recognizes your country's new diplomatic reclassification, you don't qualify for asylum, refugee status temporary protective status humanitarian parole non-immigration work travel visa, you at this time are simply "unacceptable".
- You do?
I hope you don't mind if I eat while
we talk. I've a bit of bad news.
Your country has suspended
all traveling privileges
on passports issued
by your government.
And our State Department
has revoked the visa
that was going to allow
you to enter the U.S.
That's it in a nutshell, basically.
While you were in the air, there was
a military coup in your country.
Most of the dead were members
of the Presidential Guard.
They were attacked in the
middle of the night.
They got it all on GHN, I think.
There were few civilian casualties.
I'm sure your family's fine.
Mr. Navorski, your country
was annexed from the inside.
The Republic of Krakozhia
is under new leadership.
- Right. I don't think he gets it.
Let me... Look.
Imagine that these potato
chips are Krakozhia.
- Krakozhia. Yes. Okay.
So the potato chips are Krakozhia.
- And this apple...
- Big Apple.
Big Apple represents the
Liberty Rebels. Okay?
No more Krakozhia. Okay?
Revolution. You understand?
All the flights in and out of
your country have been suspended.
The new government has sealed all
borders, so your visa's no longer valid.
So, currently, you are
a citizen of nowhere.
Now, we can't process
you new papers
until the U.S. recognizes your country's
new diplomatic reclassification.
You don't qualify for
asylum, refugee status,
temporary protective status,
or non-immigration work travel.
You don't qualify for any of these.
You are at this time simply...
Big Apple tour includes
Empire State, Broadway show Cats.
I got more bad news
for you. Cats has closed.
Now I go New York City. Thank you.
No, Mr. Navorski. I cannot allow you to
enter the United States at this time.
- We can't allow you to go home either.
You don't really have a home.
Technically, it doesn't exist.
It's like a Twilight Zone.
Do you get that show over there?
"Talking Tina," "Nightmare at
30,000 Feet," "Zanti Misfits."
"Zanti Misfits" was
Outer Limits, sir.
Oh, really? It's not important.
Where do I buy the Nike shoes?
Okay, Mr. Navorski,
come here. Walk with me.
Here's my dilemma, Mr. Navorski.
You have no right to enter the U.S.
and I have no right to detain you.
You have fallen through
a crack in the system.
- I am crack.
- Yes. Until we get this sorted out,
I will allow you to enter the
International Transit Lounge.
I'm going to sign a release form that
is going to make you a free man.
Free to go anywhere you like
within the confines of the
International Transit Lounge.
Uncle Sam will have this
sorted out by tomorrow,
and welcome to the
United States. Almost.
- Thank you.
- Thanks, Judge.
