Salvadorean rightist is denied visa by US

Roberto d'Aubuisson, who has been linked to ''death squad'' activity in El Salvador and is a leading right-wing candidate for president, will not be given a visa to enter this country, administration sources say.

Major d'Aubuisson wants to visit congressmen, speak to Republican groups at Georgetown University, and hold a news conference Tuesday in an effort to enhance his stature as a candidate.

His visa has been invalid since 1980 and he was denied permission to visit Washington last November during a high-visibility campaign by the Reagan administration to force the provisional government in San Salvador to crack down on the right-wing death squads.
