A teacher from San Diego was returning to the United States from Mexico, when she was stopped at a border checkpoint. When a Border Partol Agent asked her what her citizenship was, Shane Parmely said, “You can ask, but I don’t have to answer.”
Can you imagine?
Parmely asked, “Are we crossing a border? I’ve never been asked if I’m a citizen before when I’m traveling down the road.”
The border crossing checkpoint wasn’t exactly at the border. Several areas have a customs and immigration checkpoint a few miles inside the US border. But it doesn’t matter where it is!
“You are required to answer an immigration question,” the Agent said. “You are not required to answer any other questions.”
When asked if she was being detained, she was told, “You are being detained, ma’am.”
Parmely tried to make it into a Social Justice Warrior statement.
“I have a bunch of teacher friends who are sick of their kids being discriminated against,” she said.
She needs to realize that every immigration law in every country in the world is, by nature, discriminatory. It discriminates against people who don’t have a legal right to be in the country. And in an effort to ensure sovereignty, people may be asked to prove where they’re from.
She couldn’t pull this crap off in Mexico, Switzerland, or even Belize for that matter! What makes her think she can do it in the U.S.A.?
Chicks on the Right reports:
I’m SURE this woman’s fellow travelers were just thrilled to find out their turn to go through the border checkpoint was delayed by her pointless virtue-signaling.
According to this, a teacher from San Diego was coming back into the country from Mexico when she was stopped at a border crossing checkpoint in New Mexico. A border patrol agent asked her if she was an American citizen.
