Yep, to some extent, I share the feeling. I was hoping though that incidents like this would only happen where warranted - as in the case of those possessing dubious documentation, unclear purpose of travel and hazy contact information.
I do understand that every country needs to protect itself from human trafficking rings, illegal immigrants and possible terror elements. But in this case, it seems that the immigration officers enjoyed what they were doing to a 63-year old woman who was only visiting the US to attend her daughter’s wedding.
Then again, what can an old visiting Filipino woman do to agents of the US government?
