Cate McMillan as Cate McMillan in
27 Acknowledged and Sanctioned People

My sister Cate travelled to Germany as a foreign exchange student in high school and never came back. She’s been in Deutschland for 8 years and now thinks in German. She has a vision for taking care of the homeless, and in particular, punk rock youth. She and her friends have put together a group that provides basic services, as well as a cafe and a street theater. All without a visa, until now.

She didn’t qualify for existing visas, however, as of last week they created a whole new category of visa for her because they “think what she is doing is worthwhile.” She is now classified as a “freely-creating artist with social interests.”

Model bureaucracy.
