U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says he will support legislation that would allow Polish citizens to travel to the U.S. for up to 90 days without a visa.

Poland is among the few European Union countries left out of a U.S. waiver program. Durbin voiced his support for including Poland in the Visa Waiver Program on Thursday in Washington. Durbin was chairing a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the nomination of Stephen Mull as the new U.S. ambassador to Poland.

While Poland is a key U.S. ally in many respects, the country isn't included at least partly out of concern that Polish visitors will stay as illegal immigrants. U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois and U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley of Chicago also support a bill to include Poland.
