Husker, we are all waiting for you to elaborate.
Well we had 21 teens and adults (US Citizens) on our yellow school bus. On re-entry we were required to depart and unload the bus, the borderpatrol and the national guard argued about how to handle us, in the mean time we has some people\teens in the US and some in Mexico, a few of the younger ones we terrified at the loss of control the leaders and what might happen to them as they were separated from us. I can understand protecting the border . We had clearly 21 people who were clearly "causcian" very white skinned - 8 crying their eyes out, disorganization and arguments of authority between two authorities at the border at our expense.
We had paperwork that was clearing 100% in order that was not looked at all or even checked. With 12 youth that are minors you do not risk not having the correct paperwork, forms, and waviers. This was my 5th trip into the baja since 98 and the worst horrible treatment ever. Remember I said I understand protecting our borders - but please.
Now on the other hand - I do feel as americans we feel some privilege as world citizens that our crap don't stink, not the case for my group.
