Why was he allowed to enter the U.S.?

If he had false documents that prevented admittance to the UK why did the US allow his entrance? He is a sex offender according to other reports.

  • Fingerprints are NOT the most conclusive evidence one can present?! Do you get out of the mountains much Ozark?!

  • This is about him being allowed into England. It doesn't mention that he was ever in the U.S.

  • You obviously cannot read. The post says plainly he took another flight to the US.

  • He was accused of a crime in the UK but not charged. The UK has every right to refuse him entry but since no charges were filed I doubt there would be anything in his records that would prevent him from entering the US.

    As for the false document, I doubt the immigration people at a US airport would have picked up on anything like that. I've flown back and forth across the atlantic many times on different visas and I've only once encountered a competent worked on this side.

  • First, he was possibly linked by fingerprints (which nowadays is not the most conclusive evidence you could present). Secondly, he wasn't charged with anything, so no reason to bar his entry into the US. Third, one document was "false" and "led to further inquires" thats a pretty generalized statement. Which document? What made it 'false'? Coming from a country with known problems with paperwork, its pretty unfair to judge the situation without more details.
