Don't pet the sweaty things.

Maybe I could hide my spouse in the trunk?

I would think that most American Border Agents cannot tell the difference between people of Muslim, Hindu, Baptist, etc. the only one they 'think' they know is maybe Christian (and even then the person would have to be blonde, green eyes and white) !! So, how are they assessing who and who will not be given a hard time at customs?? colour and name?? This is really fu#ked-up and speaks volume to this bans' intolerance of mankind and fraternity.

Either that or make a few trips to the US embassy if it's worth it.

We have not visited Vancouver in ages. My spouse has not seen Halifax yet. Neither gave I.

Even if she could enter the US visa-free, no guarantee we'd go. Nothing personal. Just that we like China.

But with that in mind, a visa requirement for her is all it takes to make the decision definite that it's not worth it.

They can judge skin tone, accent, language, and funny clothing as well as funny food etc.

Who knows what might trigger them?

US air quality is probably far better than in China. But I have family and friends in China but not in the US.

Kim Jong Don addressed the Canadian Girl Guides crisis yesterday, saying "They're some bad hombres. Rapists. Murderers. And many, I'm sure, are nice people. But I'll keep them out. I'll build a big, beautiful wall, and I'll make Canada pay for it."

He added after that rant "Nobody loves Girl Guides more than I do. NOBODY!"

Not so much that he'd grab them though... I hope.

I'm usually sympathetic with the border guards... but when I had one tell me, after I'd been stopped, that he'd let me into the US but 'next time make sure everything's right', and when I asked him what he meant he said he couldn't tell me, that soured me. Okay, if I did something wrong, tell me so I know. Don't give me this "I can't tell you because you'll say so and so told me that was okay" BS.

That piece of gossip was anecdotal at best! Let's see some names, dates and locations before the myth is perpetuated further!

Well, unless he's eating pizza with the pope and Bill Clinton.

If your papers are not in order, then they should tell you what wasn't correct.

Sounds like he was just feeling authoritarian and full of himself...

Yep, and again, that's nothing new. Crap that that didn't just start happening as soon as Trump got elected. Hell, crap like that was going on even before 9/11.

UIS American bureaucrats are notorious for exactly the kind of behaviour as described.

It's not surprising really. If you want to be mean to people and get away with it, best to find a job whereby you have authority over them.

Yes, it was. I mean my gosh, did you know that even White people have been turned back at the border? Even before Trump and even before 9/11? Think about that for a sec, White people were and are denied entry on a regular basis.

I've crossed the border at various places throughout most of my 50 years and most of the crossings were just fine. Sometimes I would have to go to secondary for further vehicle inspection and a quick interview. And sometimes those extra checks and interviews weren't so quick. I think my personal record is 4 hours.

A friend of mine who moved to Winnipeg from South-western Ontario was denied entry to cross the border because he couldn't prove to the guard that he wasn't going to stay in the US to find work. So he had to drive the long way, all the way around the lake head. Again, all before Trump and 9/11.
And as I related in this forum elsewhere, when I was a kid my family and I were turned back at the border because while my father was a citizen, he wasn't born here. The US border guard said he'd never heard of Wales and didn't believe my dad's birth certificate was genuine.
Yep, people getting turned back at the border is a daily occurrence. Hundreds of thousands of people cross every single day, not including commercial crossings. It's inevitable that some of them are going to be turned back for any number of reasons. Can't just blame it all on race or religion. Well, you can try but then you'd just sound like another brain-dead proggie.

CBSA is hiring.
