Woman Plays Games At Immigration Checkpoint, Is Shocked!!! That She Was Detained

Woman Plays Games At Immigration Checkpoint, Is Shocked!!! That She Was Detained

This is a story that has been hanging out for a couple days now, but seems to be growing as illegal alien loving/immigration officer hating news outlets get in on the Outrage, even as far away as Columbus, Ohio

Woman records confrontation after refusing to answer immigration questions

A California woman says she was detained for about 90 minutes after refusing to tell border patrol agents if she is a US citizen.

One of Shane Parmely’s children recorded the exchange last Friday while sitting in the back seat of the car, KFMB reported.

Parmely, a teacher from San Diego, was approached by agents when she approached an inland immigration checkpoint. The agents asked her if she was a US citizen.

“Are we crossing a border?” Parmely responded.

“No,” he said, “But are you United States citizens?”

“Are we crossing a border?” Parmely responded. “I’ve never been asked if I’m a citizen before when I’m traveling down the road.”

“This is an immigration checkpoint,” the agent responded.

“Right, but we’re not crossing a border,” Parmely said. “You can ask me, I don’t have to answer.”

Actually, by law, she does. But, what was really going on here?

Parmely told KFMB she refused to answer the questions in a show of solidarity with friends who say they have been aggressively questioned by border patrol agents.

“It’s horrifying to hear what has happened to my friends’ kids who are just brown,” she said.

“So, if I have an accent, and I’m brown, can I just say, ‘Yes,’ and go ahead or do I have to prove it?” Parmely asked the agent. “I have a bunch of teacher friends who are sick of their kids being discriminated against.”

In other words, she intentionally provoked an incident here, and then complained when she got what she was asking for. This isn’t one of those things that just happened, as you can see from the video at the link. The officers were respectful and polite. She was nasty and rude.

Via Newsbusters, a CBS News This Morning report noted that she asked her kids to start recording as they approached the checkpoint. She knew she was going to create a scene.

The Border Patrol released this statement

Border Patrol checkpoints are critical tool for the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws. At a Border Patrol checkpoint, an agent may question a vehicle’s occupants about their citizenship, place of birth, and request document proof of immigration status, how legal status was obtained and make quick observations of what is in plain view in the interior of the vehicle. During the course of the immigration inspection, if an occupant refuse to answer an agent’s questions, the agent may detain the driver for a reasonable amount of time until he or she can make a determination regarding the occupant’s immigration status. It is agency policy that all individuals with whom we interact are treated with dignity and respect.

She, and many illegal alien/immigration enforcement agent hating news outlets seem very proud that she never answered the question. Well, that’s because the Border Patrol would have verified who she was, before releasing her after a “heart-wrenching” 90 minutes. She asked for trouble, and go it.
