Sonam Sheth, provided by Published 4:21 pm PST, Thursday, January 3, 2019 Reuters National-security experts are sounding the alarm after Russian authorities charged Paul Whelan, a former US Marine, with espionage Thursday after he was detained in Moscow last month. Intelligence veterans said there are several clues in Whelan's past that make it unlikely that he is a US intelligence officer.

It was an incredibly enriching experience in many ways, but as a foreigner — I am Kenyan — I found myself frequently answering a version of the same, seemingly benign question: “Are you planning to stay in the United States?” Now, with everything happening around US immigration, I understand why the question would come up.
