The Connors family didnít plan to be on the unmarked road.
Originally from the United Kingdom, the two couples and their three young children were driving near the U.S.-Canada border on Oct. 3 during a visit to Vancouver when an animal ventured into the road, forcing them to make an unexpected detour. But before the family could get very far, flashing lights from a police car appeared in their rearview mirror. The officer that pulled them over was American ó they had accidentally crossed the border.

Tourists, even legit ones, don't drive around with that much cash on hand.
Must be Muslims.
The Washington Post headline for this article is, somewhat surprisingly, more evenhanded: “U.S. officials say British family illegally crossed border from Canada on purpose”
Both Canada and Britain refused to take them back? There is something bing the author isnt telling us.
Oh brother, invoking the holocaust.
If the marauders would prefer a more permanent home in a Turkish prison I bet that could be arranged.
I hope the USCBP planted contraband on these American hating leftists.
This is about as bizarre a story as I’ve read in a while. Nothing really makes sense.
Piss poor reporting in this story. The author appears to take everything the Conners say face value, and doesn’t ask why they had $16,000 cash or why Canada wouldn’t let them back in
Indeed. And who takes a “detour” (across an international border, no less) when an animal ventures on to the road in front of their car? Simply honking the horn, even at a large bear, would get it to move along. There is far more to this than the WAPO is telling us.
It's certainly not believable the way it sits...
The Leftards can’t claim racism since this family is white.
With the Brits living among so many muzzies, you would think it would not be so east to “TRAUMATIZE” them.
Stay home Lovlies, you are safe with your Muslem mayors.
Yeah that’s an eyebrow raiser. It doesn’t say if it’s Canadian or US cash though. If they had no intent of visiting the US and it was US cash they have some splainin’ to do.
Not believable, but I could credit the part about the poor conditions in the holding facilities.
What a bunch of Hog Wash!!! Lie Lie Lie!!
but in any case, two more brits have been re-exposed to the concept of sovereignty and national borders. And that is a very good thing
This story is such crap. Brits, with passports can easily enter the US. A family on vacation, with three small kids just out driving Around? And they were detoured by an animal? Unless that animal was a bull moose standing its ground, I think the story sounds fishy.
Yeah, you would be detained. They would check out their credentials. The kids would be given a TV to watch and something to drink. They would be on their way in an hour.
