PinayTraveler to US Got Detained and Deported

Posted by:

A 63-year old Filipina relayed her rude and traumatic experience in the hands of  US immigration officers by sending an email to local media organizations. In the email, Carina Yonzon Grande claims that she was harassed and detained for six hours by immigration officials upon her arrival at Seattle International Airport last October 1. The US officers even called her a liar when she said that her travel purpose is to visit her grandson and attend the wedding of her daughter on October 26.

Grande who  is at that time traveling to America for the 13th time was accused of  being undocumented and with the intention of working as a caregiver to a 90-year old relative in US. The officers said that when they contacted the relatives of Grande, the said aunt said that Grande is set to be her carer.

Grande was made to choose between being jailed or deported. She said she chose deportation as  she is already tired and hungry after six hours of interrogation.

The US Embassy in Manila is yet to give a statement regarding the complaint of Grande. On the other hand, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) promised help to the deported Pinay. The DFA Spokesperson, Raul Hernandez said,  ”We are ready to receive more details from the complainant and assist her through our office that handles Assistance to National cases. Based on these specific details we will move forward on this issue.”

Hernandez also said that in accordance to the  international standards for the treatment of foreign nationals, the Philippines expects all nations to treat Filipino travelers with respect and dignity.
