    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Yes. You can do nothing. AP is a form of force major. It is a force of nature, so to speak, and you can do nothing but pray for its quick passage and least devastated effect possible on your chances to actually get a visa. Why? Because it is the United State Government's exercise of it's sovereign power to control who is allowed to come in. Like most sovereign powers, it is arbitrary and capricious.
