Former military captain detained for months in U.S. on decades-old marijuana charge in Canada

 

i saw this on the Guardian where as might have been expected it had been twisted into a anti Trump meme, but seems a common issue here, spouses etc with drug trafficking charges.

Drug Trafficking is a no no for US Immigration.

Got to be more to this story. 

Has to be.  He sold MJ, paid a fine and did his time in CA, and was later pardoned.  Then he worked with the CIA and was able to obtain TS clearance.

 

Now he's busted trying to register a vehicle?  And is being moved around different jails? 

 

Yeah, not all is being revealed, I am afraid.

He was convicted in Canada of dealing.

 

Seemed to be doing the express route to immigrate to the US and his criminal history was picked up.

 

No idea if it was of consequence for his Canadian military career, certainly is as far as US immigration is concerned.

This statement kinda gives it away. The press does it all the time. Remember "gentle Giant gunned down by police officer" 

 

Randall Emery, the president of a group called American Families United, which assists U.S. citizens who sponsor their spouses to join them in the United States, said Mr. Furman is just one of many people who have fallen victim to stringent new rules implemented by ICE under the Trump administration.

Lots of drug dealing convictions, would be good to have an example of somebody who got a pass under Obama.

Ahhh, gotcha.  I missed that part.  So... much ado about nothing.
