US Government Partners With Disney to Welcome International Visitors

The United States government has debuted a new media presentation designed to welcome international visitors to the United States.

The video, called Portraits of America, was produced by the Walt Disney company in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State.

The seven minute program, features hundreds of images of Americans from all walks of life. It will be shown starting this week at two U.S. airports before being expanded to play at all the country's international airports and U.S. embassies around the world.

The video, which was funded entirely by Disney, comes as part of the Rice-Chertoff Initiative which "seeks to secure America's borders" while welcoming legitimate visitors to the United States.
