They're being administratively charged with failure to report on landfall in the States," said A.J. Price, a border patrol agent with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. "I don't think it's fair," said a nervous Kerr, who spent a near sleepless night shaking and "freaking out."
"It was an accident and not like he had a choice what hospital to go to. Here's a guy who was drowning and lucky enough to be saved -- and now he faces this."
According to Kerr, Jason had asked and obtained permission from the U.S. Border Patrol to ride his Sea-Doo back and forth across the unseen border that runs down the middle of the Niagara River.
Price, meanwhile, said that while it's possible to go on both sides of the border on the river, a person must report to the appropriate authorities upon landing on American soil.
"We have no discretion in the matter and that's why we're giving it to an immigration judge," Price said.
The two men will attend a closed hearing before an immigration judge today. It's expected, they'll either be issued a removal order and deported back to Canada or the judge may dismiss the charges against them.

In 'insane times', insane things happen. This is one example. There are many more.

Yes, our government needs a distraction. Obviously, they think we're stupid.

Where is the sympathetic write ups in the newspaper showing his sad face in the shadow of the detention center? Where are the Cunucka's, or Canadianettes protesting outside his cell? Oh the humanity!
