Custom's Nightmare - pre-crime determination - aka EXTREME VETTING gone wild
SO.... I've been chatting with this kid, via an "organic farming" website ... for six years now - who lives in Sweden because he and I have the same interest and he has so much practical experience - using old tried and true methods, passed down from his family - that have all but been forgotten here in the US ... even though he is in his early twenties, and I could be his grandmother - his advice was always spot on, and I really appreciate his insights

a couple of years back, I invited him to come to the US, to help me with a few big projects I wanted to get started on my farm... I offered to trade him Room and Board, for work, and to pay him, for any work he did, over and above those expenses ... even offered to fly him back and forth because it was cheaper than hiring local kids, who had no work ethic - and were not dependable, and did a shitty job, WITH supervision - even though I paid them ten bucks an hour ... but he turn me down - twice

fast forward three years, his parent sold their farm and he was struggling to find work, because farms are state regulated, and few and far between in the EU ... and he hated "city life" but somehow he had managed to save enough money, to buy his own ticket to the States, and was willing to come here and work for me for the three months he was allowed to stay for a "visit" (which requires no Visa) ... so I said SURE - I'll pick you up at the airport

but when I got there (yesterday) Customs wouldn't let him enter ... they ASSUMED that he was just going to stay ... I talked to the Customs agent and pointed out that he had a return ticket and was only going to stay for three months - because even if he loved America, we both knew, that he would have to go home, and get a "work Visa" to stay longer ... I told the Agent that it took him years to earn his way here, and we weren't doing anything illegal. The fact that he didn't have/declare the kind of money tourist usually have, was because I was going to pay him to help me out ... I even told him to travel "light" because we planned on shopping at Goodwill, for the clothes he needed that could be tossed when he left
- which was why all he had in his back pack was his favorite farm boots, gloves, hat and his laptop - a few odds and ends but nothing "threatening"

they wouldn't even let me meet with him ... they told me to go home. I have no idea what they did with him after that, because I haven't heard from him since then ... and I don't blame him ... all that money - four hours to the Airport - 12 hours on a plane - and he was sent back because some Custom's agent determined he was a potential "illegal alien"
since when do the Custom official screen VISITORS like that ? After talking to some other "officials" at the airport, I was told that they are getting a flood of Swedish "visitors" lately and that many of them were (especially millineals) staying beyond the 3months allowed- and just disappearing into society ... taking "American jobs" - and that since Trump was elected, they were being turned back - esp the ones who planned on "visiting" for the three full months they are allowed (without a visa)or coming without a return flight home - the fact that, after questioning, it was revealed that we were not related and met "on-line" raised red flags. The fact that I had known him for six years and that we talked on a regular basis almost daily and I trusted him enough to allow him into my home - he was white and not a muslim and had no police record and spoke and wrote English better than me - was ignored

what really irks me, is the fact that I have tried to hire "help" for the past ten years - offering them the same "deal" - work for Rent and meals or $10/ph - and been burnt - time after time ... the last girl I hired, to train my horse to pull a cart, spent exactly three hours on that, making one excuse after another for five months - until I kicked her out

I have hired neighbor kids, and kids from a local church - but none of them were willing to actually work ... if I hired more than one of them - nothing got done - even when I was right there working side by side with them ... if one of their phones rang, they all went on break ... they don't take instructions, because even if they have never done a job, they know a better way of doing it ... and for one reason or another, only show up for work, when they need the money ... I even had one "crew" that went on vacation, in the middle of a job they started which set me back two weeks- I've had to teach several of them how to hammer a nail ...

I'm still looking for someone which was why I was so willing to hire a "foreigner" but because I live thirty miles out of town, they don't want to live that far from their friends ... or it cost them too much to travel back and forth if they have their own transportation ...even my grandkids, work for less money- to be "in town" ... the older people I've interviewed have some really bad habits (alcoholics etc) which I don't want to have to deal with or they are "illegals" ... even hired a pair of Vets who were married (pregnant) and homeless, but they didn't last a month either - they wanted to watch TV all day and literally ate me out of house and home

you make a very good point ...I hadn't considered that - everyone I spoke to was white ... his final words were - that he determined that this young man was trying to IMMIGRATE - the wrong way.

the thought never crossed my mind, that he would be denied entry in a "resort" state that depends on tourist incomes -- I should have told him to bring his skies and snowshoes
