Dollar Mata more powerful than a US visa officer?

The Indian-American astronaut Sunita Williams offered prayers to 'Dollar Mata', a revered deity in Jhulasan Village in the Gujarat State of India. The deity "Dola Mata" was rechristened "Dollar Mata" following a spate of successful US visa and Green Card applications. Times of India reports that 1700 people have immigrated to the US following prayers and offerings to the deity. The temple was also the site of a three day prayer service for the safe return of Sunita from outer space.
