A few weeks ago we came up to Ontario from Ohio to find somewhere to live.
When we returned to the US, the US border guard asked what we were doing in Canada. We said we were visiting for a few days. He asked “what specifically were you doing in Canada” so we told him we were looking for somewhere to live, and he asked “Why are you moving to Canada, don’t you wanna live in America no more? In Canada gas is $4.50 per gallon”. Eric said gas was less expensive than $4.50, and the border guard said “Why are you moving to Canada, don’t you wanna live in America no more? You can’t just move to Canada you know, you need to have papers to move there”. We told him that Eric had a visa, and he looked at Eric’s passport to find the visa and studied it. Is the US border guard a Canadian border guard now? After studying the visa, the border guard asked us a third time “Why are you moving to Canada, don’t you wanna live in America no more, do you hate America?“ I said I was born and raised in Canada, so he took my passport and looked up where I was born. Finally he said we could go. Very strange.
If the US is such a free country, why do people think Americans are traitors when they move to another country?
