Manpreet Kooner, 30, a birthright Canadian-Indian citizen, was denied entry at the American Border for not having an immigrant visa. She was held and questioned for six hours, fingerprinted, and photographed, while her two white friends were left alone. "I know you may feel like you've been Trumped," a border guard allegedly told her.

Kooner, born to Indian parents in Canada and raised in the country, is a birthright citizen, with all of the rights that accords - including rights under Canadian-United States treaties allowing Canadian citizens to cross the border without a visa.

Kooner's issues come as a wave of fearful immigrants jump the border into Canada from the U.S.

She just wanted a day trip.

So what sinister plan of Kooner's merited a day of interrogation? A girls' day out to a Vermont spa with her two friends. Kooner stated that she didn't want to blame racism, but that her friends had suggested that she should consider the possibility.

Following her ordeal, Kooner was told that she would have to apply for the required visa at the United States Embassy in Ottawa, some 125 miles from her home. Kooner obediently made the trip on Monday but was turned away there, too, told that they could not help her. They said that she would need to contact U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Canadians can normally cross unimpeded.

Due to a number of border treaties and agreements, although border agents can deny someone for any reason, Canadians normally have no trouble crossing. A visa is typically only required when somebody intends to immigrate; traveling for pleasure, in particular, is normally unrestricted.

But nothing is normal at the border right now, and many Canadians have stories of being blocked since Trump's inauguration. Multiple stories of being blocked from attending the inauguration and/or its protests cropped up at the time, and since, America has had some unusual incidents - a French Holocaust scholar was detained and nearly deported, an Argentinian artist was turned away, and more.

Kooner said she was left speechless, without answers.

Last summer, Kooner's mother was denied at the border for reasons that were unspecified. She was assured that her mother's issues wouldn't cause any trouble for her, but her own border problems began last December. She, her friends and fiancé were pulled aside for what was described a "random check" and had to fill out numerous forms. They were ultimately denied entry on that trip but were told it was an issue with the computerized system and that they would need to return the next day. They did and crossed without further incident.

When stopped last Sunday, the border agent noted that she had problems crossing the border in December, and inquired as to why she was attempting to return.

She informed them that she was a Canadian Citizen, had no criminal record, and had never had problems crossing before December.

Many similar incidents have occurred since Trump first instituted his "Muslim Ban."

That's when she started to cry.

Kooner currently holds tickets worth over $1,000 to attend a concert in Miami at the end of the month; she's also booked her own bachelorette party there in May.

Now she doesn't know if she'll ever consider returning. She's considering selling the tickets and canceling her party. The thought of crossing the U.S. border again makes her sick.

"I feel targeted. I'm set aside from everyone else, and I feel helpless because I keep asking, 'What do I need to do?'"
