On Sunday night, John Oliver pointed out that the U.S. process for issuing special immigrant visas for translators is so difficult that it has more steps than it takes to quit heroin. Oliver even revealed that, despite the fact that interpreters risk their lives every day for troops, random Afghani donkeys have an easier time getting into the states.
From watching the segment, it's apparent that somewhere along the lines of bureaucracy, common sense gets lost in translation.
"Last Week Tonight" airs Sunday at 11:00 p.m. ET on HBO.
