After being granted absolute pardon by President Rodrigo Duterte, Robin Padilla was still denied of his US Visa, preventing him to visit his wife Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla and daughter Isabella in United States.
In an Instagram post, Padilla shared that even though they’ve “begged, pleaded, argued,” US visa was still not given to him.
“🇵🇭My honest opinion is they don’t want to issue him a visa. We have begged, pleaded, argued and should be issued the visa. For whatever reason, the state department is blocking the issuance of his visa. Believe me, I am (almost) as aggravated and frustrated as you. We even tried humanitarian parole, and, for whatever reason, other branches for the gov’t follow along……………… YOU did your best for me already @marieltpadilla “Nothing shall ever happen to us except what Allah has ordained for us. He is our Mawla (protector).” And in Allah let the believers put their trust.) Quran (Surah Tawba, Verse 51) sobra sobra na ang nagawa mo pati kay kumareng @analynmabao its time for you to enjoy your christmas with your family in the US ofA 🇺🇸,” Padilla wrote in the caption.
