CARE Tour Refused Entry into U.S. - For Now

2003-01
Vegan Outreach

"It has been almost a week since the Compassion for Animals Road Expedition (CARE) first attempted to cross the Canadian/U.S. border, in vain. We were told that we did not have the necessary documents to enter the United States for any kind of public speaking, or to do any kind of work, paid or unpaid. We were further warned that if we tried to re-enter the U.S. under any false pretense, we would be barred from entry of any kind for 5 years.

"We did not make this announcement any earlier, except to our CARE participants and supporters in Washington, Oregon and California – the first three states in CARE’s 40-state itinerary – because we wanted to try other avenues and border crossings, which had become our full time occupation over the last six days. We (Brenda Davis, her son Cory and I) loaded and unloaded the CARE-a-van twice, visited the U.S. Consulate twice, consulted two immigration attorneys, were refused at two border crossings on three occasions, spoke with our U.S. sponsor by phone numerous times… To make a long story short, we have come to the conclusion that our best and perhaps only option is to postpone the tour to the fall.

"Without a doubt, this is a blow and a setback.... But though the CARE tour has been stalled, animal sufferings and species endangerment continue unabated, and we must look forward. The wheels are already in motion in redesigning the CARE tour route. We have our sight set on departing from Vancouver in September, and on returning to Vancouver in April, with a month-long break around Christmas...."
