    "A photo of Boundary Road, Blaine, Washington, where the Connors said they swerved from. The US and Canada are separated here by several meter of grass between two roads

    The family said they were driving near the border when they swerved to dodge an animal, and drove down an unmarked road that they later discovered was US territory. US officials have disputed this, telling Insider the family was seen on surveillance video “slowly and deliberately” driving through a ditch and entering the US illegally.

    Why people make comments and opinions based on initial press releases designed to inflame emotions before any real facts emerge is beyond me. Once these other facts emerged the picture changed dramatically.

    Because the "news" media, about a decade ago, ceased providing information for you to make a decision and started slanting information to change your decision.

    Used to be called propaganda.

    Now it's called BBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, etc.

    A Gypsey, many years ago, knocked on the front door of our little row house in a suburb of St Helens, Lancashire England. She told my wife, that she would travel the World, in an Ocean Liner. She also said her daughter would suffer from the same hip problem she has.
    All statements that would come to pass.
    The packet of wooden clothes pegs she bought, lasted for years!
    I believe that the Gypseys originally migrated from India, into Europe. Centurys ago. Prior to travelling by motor vehicles, their horse-drawn caravans were much decorated and painted, jangled as they moved by. The English Family that this story is about, due to the inherent honesty that Americans are known for (That Gypseys are not!) will get there $16,000 back and deported back to England.
