"Pictures with crayon and marker drawing are not permitted at this facility"
Image cropped for size from the original. Perhaps someone knows the backstory or the justification for such a policy by immigration control. I'd be interested.
Addendum: A hat tip to reader Bob, who found a report from back in 2013 of crayon pictures being forbidden in prisons (because of fears that drugs would be incorporated into crayon wax and licked from the pages by prisoners). Reader Elagie's suggestion that crayon pictures be photocopied and given to the prisoners seems to be a logical workaround.
