Radek Sikorski
Sikorski became notorious among Polonia as the major architect and promoter of the “passport trap” policy when he was the deputy minister of foreign affairs (1998-2001) in the Jerzy Buzek government (with Bronislaw Geremek as foreign minister).

Passport trap
“Passport trap” is the name used by Polonia to refer to the policy initiated by the government of Poland in the late 1990’s to demand a Polish passport from departing citizens of the United States, Canada, and Australia whose Polish ancestry was evident through a Polish-sounding last name.
