My excited wife bought her ticket, and then realized it stopped in Newark, where she would change planes and come on to Halifax.
Of course, to stop in the States, she needs a transit visa. So she books an appointment, and pays in advance, 2200 RMB, over $300, prepares $10,000 cash to show the consulate official, as well as our marriage certificate, Canadian visa, property ownership documents, our sons relevant documents and heads in.
She is then told that she has been denied straight off without an examination of her documents or funds. Apparently she isn't suitable to spend a couple hours at the Newark airport.
From her skype with me just now, when asked the reason they used to deny her:
I don't have social economic and family ties outside of the united state
I'm currently buying a new ticket, as the old one had been non-refundable.
All my family lives in Montana, Oregon and California, and we have been Americans for generations plus native blood.
Thank you for enacting a policy which prevents my wife and son from treading on our proud soil.
Some of you will think, but wait, your son at least should be a US citizen. But you would be wrong. If your child is born overseas and you can't show that you had lived in America for 2 years after the age of 14, they lose the right to citizenship.
The land of the free, and home of the brave.

You can clearly see he is practicing guerrilla communication techniques as well as tickle torture tactics.
Here he is practicing triggering a thermal radiant device.
Notice his glee.
Nope, we nipped this terrorist in the bud.
