Jogger Detained After Crossing the Border

Jog turns into 2-week nightmare after woman accidentally crosses US-Canada border

As she turned to head back to visit her mother who lives in British Columbia, two U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents appeared.

Roman, who wasn't carrying her the time, was staying with her mother in North Delta, British Columbia, while she studied English, CBC News reports.

CANADA: A 19-year-old teenager realized that there is no easy escape for accidentally crossing the US-border after she's been held for two weeks regarding the matter.

"He started telling me that I had crossed the border illegally and I told him I really did not do it on objective", Ms Roman told Radio-Canada (in French).

The officers took her to the Tacoma northwest detention centre, run by the Department of Homeland Security, about 190km (120m) to the south.

"I did not think they would put me in jail", she said. "They asked me to remove all my personal belongings with my jewelry, they searched me everywhere". Ferne said that officials in Tacoma told her that she must go to Immigration Canada to ensure that Roman was permitted to be brought back to Canada.

Roman was released on June 6, after her mother, Christiane Ferne, provided immigration officials with her daughter's paperwork and authorities in both the USA and Canada determined that the jogger could return to Canada.

President Donald Trump , wants to unwind some of the cuts by engineering a "moderate" supply boost in the second half of the year. Current compliance is around 40-50 per cent above target because of production outages in Venezuela, Libya and Angola.

She was allowed to contact her mother, Christiane Ferne, who came to the detention facility with Ms Roman's passport and work permit. "Anybody can be caught at the border like this".

Roman said she didn't see any signs warning that she was crossing into the USA during her jog.

That was not to be the case, according to US immigration officials, who confirmed the subsequent events in an email to The Washington Post.

The good news is that Roman was reunited with her family.

She was taken to the US-Canadian border near Blaine, Washington, on June 5, Cutrell said.

The U.S. zero tolerance policy has drawn the world's attention to the southern border... but the policy also appears to be in effect at the northern border with Canada. But neither the ICE nor Immigration Canada would comment further on the case, citing privacy concerns.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection have released a statement about the border area saying: 'anyone who enters into the U.S. outside an official port of entry and without inspection has crossed the border illegally, and will be processed accordingly. It's unclear why Roman was not taken back to the U.S. The spokesperson is quoted as saying, "This applies regardless of whether or not the individual claims to have inadvertently crossed the border".
