Technician says increased protectionism at U.S. border is unfair
A highly skilled Canadian telecommunications specialist who worked in Utah for more than a decade has suddenly been denied entry into the U.S. in a case he and others say highlights the increasing difficulties Canadians are facing at the American border.
"Is there a war going on [at] the border that we don't know about?" Kevin Gibbons asks. "Why are Canadians getting hassled so much right now?"
Gibbons is devastated because, he said, for the first time in his life, he's looking for a job and a new home — thanks to the discretion of U.S. border guards.
