U.S. border guards detain Canadian woman for 5 hours, refuse entry without visa


A Vancouver woman is afraid to try to enter the United States after she was held for hours without reason and eventually denied entry at a border crossing -- a situation immigration lawyers say is becoming more common.

Software developer Jaklyn De Vos had planned to visit her godfather in Seattle, Wash., in April when she and her partner were brought in for questioning at the Sumas border crossing in Abbotsford, B.C.

After nearly five hours, a border patrol officer told her she was denied entry and that she would need a visa — something not normally required for Canadians at land border crossings — to enter the U.S. again. With no criminal record or history of problems entering the U.S., De Vos said she can't understand why she has not been given an explanation. The denial didn't apply to her partner, but the two decided to turn around and return to Vancouver.

Political sidebar:

Maybe it has something to do with one of America's least popular politicians, Betsy De Vos?  Who wants more of the same?

They're probably not being paid.

So need a kick-back from an American lawyer who would have been called by any normal Canadian held up by gun-toting thugs.
