French teen who accidentally crossed Canada-US border held for 2 weeks

Posted June 24, 2018

Roman crossed over accidentally, took a picture, and then she was approached by USA border officials.

A young French woman who was visiting her mother in western Canada spent two weeks in a United States detention center after inadvertently crossing the border while jogging along the beach, a report said Friday. She was in Canada visiting her mother who lives in North Delta, British Columbia. It was then that she saw USA border patrol officers approaching her because she had unknowingly crossed the US border. "I told him I hadn't done it on goal, and that I didn't understand what was happening".

That's where Roman's run took a very different turn - one that ended up costing her two weeks in a Tacoma detention center, according to the CBC story.

Her mother said: "It was just unfair that there was nothing, no sign at the border". She told her mom and sister she would see them again after she went for a jog.

Roman told CBC that she didn't have any documents with her during her jog.

Roman was held in custody for two weeks before immigration officials on both sides of the border confirmed she was allowed back into Canada. "They asked me to remove all my personal belongings with my jewelry. It's like a trap.anybody can be caught at the border like this".

Roman is certainly not the first outdoors enthusiast to have made the mistake along the U.S.
