2012 USA Tour Delayed
Hello everyone, my name is Ian Smith. Many of you may know me as Big Ian from Faygoluvers.net. Recently KC and I had been in talks and from here on out I will be working on the KidCrusher team as his manager. With the minor introduction out of the way lets move on to the stale news…
The first thing that I began work on with KC was the very important issue of his ability to travel to the U.S. and we have already hit some pretty major roadblocks. The U.S. immigration system is notoriously hard to work with and while researching KC’s situation earlier today I came across the following updates that are different from the information we all have been hearing since KC’s famous trip in 2008.
Firstly it has been brought to our attention that ANY drug charges on someone’s record regardless of how minor typically mandates permanent non-entry to the U.S. for that person. There is an appeals process that due to the extremely low level of his offense could very well yield a pardon/pass on that issue. KC’s 5 year ban from the U.S. was actually a ban on being able to appeal his offense that was issued to him because he attempted to enter the improperly in 2008. What does this mean? It means that his 5 year ban might not have started from his arrest date in March of 2007 but in August of 2008 when he attempted to fly here. Now what does that mean? It means that KC MIGHT have to push back attempting his U.S. return another 1-2 years.
There is still hope… As I said before the U.S. immigration system is notoriously hard to work with and despite my best efforts we are at a point in the immigration process where we need the council of a lawyer. If you are a KidCrusher fan reading this right now and you are a lawyer, a legal aid, studding in law school or if you have a parent, spouse or friend who is any of the aforementioned things we need to hear from you ASAP. KC is at a crucial point in his career and he needs the help of you, his fans now more than ever. If you have the help we are looking for please contact us to talk and discuss prices for any services that are provided.
On another front of KC’s U.S. return we are starting a petition for his fans in the U.S. to sign. There are two reasons for this, the first is the traditional reasoning behind a petition to show an overwhelming support for a given cause in this case KC’s U.S. return. The second reason is that the type of travel visa KC will need is called a “P1 visa” which is intended to enable musicians and athletes to travel and tour in the U.S. without the traditional more complicated work visa. To acquire this visa he needs to be recognized as an “Internationally recognized artist” which means we need to prove that he is popular enough to have a fan base in the U.S. We are going to use this petition as this proof. What we would like all of you to do is go to this petition and explain why KC should be allowed back into the U.S. PLEASE REFRAIN FROM SWEARING OR ANY OTHER UNCOUTH LANGUAGE AS THIS WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE GOVERNMENT. Please make sure you also enter your city and state in the given field because we need to show them that all of you who sign this are actually fans in the U.S. Make sure you share this as much as possible and we will keep you posted on any changes on this situation.

Thank you all for your time in reading all this. I know that if we all work together we can bring KidCrusher to the United States sooner rather than later. Until next time…
