'Roma' Actor Jorge Antonio Guerrero Martinez Denied U.S. Visa to Attend Oscars

Mexican actor Jorge Antonio Guerrero Martínez, who stars in “Roma,” might miss the Oscars because U.S. officials have denied his visa requests, he reportedly said. Guerrero told Mexican lifestyle magazine Quién that he applied for a U.S. visa on three occasions, even giving officials a letter from producers of “Roma.” The letter attested to how Guerrero had been invited to industry events and appearances in the U.S., according to the Los Angeles Times. “Specifically, I took a letter and they refused to read it,” Guerrero reportedly told Quién. “On my second attempt, they said I was going to go work, and I said that, no, I had been invited.” The reported rejection of Guerrero’s visa comes on the heels of a just-ended partial government shutdown relating to immigration policy, specifically, President Trump’s push for a U.S.-Mexico border wall. “Roma” has been nominated for 10 Oscars.
