The U.S. Travel Association is pushing Congress to make it easier for foreigners to visit the United States. Nearly 7.6 million nonimmigrant visas were issued in 2001, compared to fewer than 6.5 million in 2010. Tourism leaders in the United States say the decline symbolizes a diplomacy failure that is costing American businesses $859 billion in untapped revenue. (AP Photo/Julie Jacobson)
