An Indian woman says she was denied entry into the U.S. because someone posted on the internet that she “looks and dresses like a Muslim.”
Linda Rizzo, the owner of a beauty boutique in Michigan, says two U.S. Border Patrol agents asked her to provide the government with a photo of her ID before they allowed her into the country. Rizzo says she eventually got a passport photo.
“They told me that because of my attire, I look and dress like a Muslim and therefore I’m not welcome here,” she told ABC TV affiliate WNEM. “What is going on?”
The agents told Rizzo they had already detained her, but she said on Saturday she wanted to file a lawsuit claiming discrimination.
“After some back and forth with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, I have filed another complaint requesting that U.S. Customs and Border Protection take the following actions,” Rizzo said in the complaint
The complaint asked for Rizzo’s permanent removal, because according to the complaint it was “grossly unfair and unlawful” that she was denied entry.
The complaint says, “there is a reasonable basis to believe that the United States Customs and Border Protection officers are biased against persons on the basis of their religious identity.”
It also said that as a person carrying such a document they have “feared for their physical safety” and that this “violates international treaties and human rights.”
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
In the new edition of How To Win a Case, one man’s advice to another’s is this: “I wish you would think about what would happen if you didn’t get what you wanted. The case doesn’t always go your way,” he said. “You could always take a case to a court that would let you do what you wanted — or else it gets taken to a lower court, and then you lose. You’re dead.” In other words, what your own counsel says is just as valuable as what the Supreme Court says.
And that advice may be true when it comes to the Supreme Court. In its recent decision in Zadvydas v. Davis, the court refused to say what happens when you win a case at the Supreme Court but then can’t afford or want to
