Kitchener Muslim family fingerprinted, denied entry to U.S.
A Kitchener woman said she felt humiliated when her family was detained for hours at a U.S. border crossing and then denied entry into the United States.
Mehdiya Hudda, 22, planned a short shopping trip in Lewiston, N.Y., near Niagara Falls, with her mother and husband on April 26, returning to Canada the same evening. The family is Muslim and both women wear head scarves.
They ended up being fingerprinted and photographed, then held in a room at the U.S. border for about six hours, while their car, cellphones and belongings were searched.
