American Citizens Abroad calls on U.S. gov't to 'prioritize' expats' access to 'essential services'
"The American Citizens Abroad has called on the Assistant Secretary of State, Carl Risch, to "prioritize overseas Americans' access to essential U.S. citizen services," citing "continuing reports" it's been receiving "regarding the serious delays, to outright inability, of some U.S. citizens to access" key U.S. citizen services outside of the country."
"In her letter to Risch dated Oct. 19, ACA executive director Marylouise Serrato said ACA understood that 'U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide have been working under unusual and difficult situations due to the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.'"
