Follow-up on Mem Fox

Mem Fox on being detained by US immigration

Mem Fox on being detained by US immigration 'In that moment I loathed America'

ABC: Mem Fox says she will never return to US after being interrogated

‘Do you think you will ever return to the US?’ asked host Tom Ballard.

‘I won’t. Absolutely not. It wouldn’t be safe for me to do so. I don’t think I’d be allowed in,’ Fox said.

‘I’d faint in the immigration queue. I couldn’t even stand in the immigration queue. I would just faint with fear.’

The Washington Post’s take: Beloved children’s author speaks out about her detainment at U.S. airport

Because I was travelling when news came out about world-famous Australian author Mem Fox’s horrific experience with US immigration when she was travelling to a book conference last month, it was a little hard to keep up with it all.

However, I’ve belatedly come across an extended, detailed version of what happened not only to her, but to the other people with her who were pulled aside and interrogated at the airport in Los Angeles.

A must-read for Trump supporters who seem to think his policies are making America ‘great’.
