French citizen in Canada accidentally jogs across US border — and gets detained for two weeks
United States Customs and Border Protection caused an international incident after detaining a French citizen jogging on the beach in British Columbia, Canada.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reports that Cedella Roman, 19, was jogging along the beach in White Rock, just north of the border. After taking a photo, Roman had reportedly turned and started jogging north when two border patrol officers detained her.

The teenager, who was visiting her mother who lives in nearby North Delta, had not brought any ID with her for her jog, but still tried to explain the situation to the border patrol.

“I told him I had not done it on purpose, and that I didn’t understand what was happening,” Roman recalled, by saying she had not seen any warning signs.

Nevertheless, she was detained and transferred over 100 miles away to the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center, run by the Department of Homeland Security.

“They put me in the caged vehicles and brought me into their facility,” she said. “They asked me to remove all my personal belongings with my jewellery, they searched me everywhere.”

“Then I understood it was getting very serious, and I started to cry a bit,” Roman recounted.

“It was just unfair that there was nothing, no sign at the border,” said her mother. “It’s like a trap … anybody can be caught at the border like this.”
