Democrat from Kentucky
We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Hoder Denied Entry Into The U.S. Wednesday, November 30, 2005

A Canadian citizen, originally from Tehran, was booted from the U.S. because of his blog. The rule is Canadians can stay in the U.S. for about 6 mos. They can't set up residence though. This fella commented on his blog he was based out of New York because he thought it sounded cooler than Toronto.

He heads back for small amount of time and then tries to ride the bus back. He's stopped at the border and grilled. The Border Patrol guy starts grilling him, reading his blog, etc. Sees a copy of Newsweek from the friend he was staying with in NYC and see it's addressed to the guy. Based on that, he's booted out of the country. He'd only been in the U.S. for a month.

The guys name on the net is Hoder, he's a member of the Committee to Protect Bloggers.
