National origin discrimination, a federal crime in the United States, is now causing Americans in Thailand to be denied financial services due to US policy.
Federal laws prohibit discrimination based on a person’s national origin, race, color, religion, disability, sex, and familial status. Laws prohibiting national origin discrimination make it illegal to discriminate because of a person’s birthplace, ancestry, culture or language. This means people cannot be denied equal opportunity because they or their family are from another country, because they have a name or accent associated with a national origin group, because they participate in certain customs associated with a national origin group, or because they are married to or associate with people of a certain national origin.

Nobody hates American law greater than the American government, who enjoys being criminal against the American people by causing innocent Americans abroad to be denied financial services simply because of their US national origin.
IT IS STARTING TO HAPPEN IN THAILAND NOW. Financial companies don’t want to do business with Americans, thanks to the tyranny of the IRS.
My wife is a dual citizen, Thai and American. We bank at the local K-Bank, the short name for KasikornBank in Thailand, and the bank has her ID of both citizenships. Yesterday, my wife went to switch a regular savings account into a year long CD with the same bank and was refused. The reason: they will not accept any new CD accounts from Americans, regardless whether they have the legal right to do so or not.
