Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Kiwi sexually assaulted, jailed, and dehumanized by USCBP

Rate this Entry

The following excerpt from a blog post entitled "Welcome Home" appeared on Shakesville and is another shameful example of how U.S. Customs and Border Protection treats individuals whose only crime is that they want to lawfully apply for admission to the United States as a visitor. 

"A few minutes later, I was told to go inside a small
room. Two customs officials, both women, went with me. One of them told
me to stand facing the wall, with my hands at head level, palms flat on
the wall. Then she patted me down. She paid particular emphasis to my
genital area, going over it twice. I remember thinking that if I had
been a trans* woman and/or a rape survivor, I'd have been terrified. As
it was, I gritted my teeth and simply endured." ~
guest blogger "Shaker bekitty"

It is a cautionary tale of what can happen to you if you chose to visit
the United States, and is a must read in its entirety.

    I think you jumped the gun here. This person was not assualted. She was also abusing the B1/2 visa nad was repeatedly warned as well.

    Her experience was horrendous, no one disputes that but making her the poster child for CIR would be wrong.
