The former police chief of Greenville, North Carolina, Hassan Aden, says he was detained for over an hour by Customs and Border Protection agents when he flew into New York City’s JFK International Airport after returning from visiting his mother in Paris. In a Facebook post, Hassan wrote that he was a U.S. citizen and had worked in law enforcement in the U.S. for nearly 30 years. He wrote that after his detention, “This country now feels cold, unwelcoming, and in the beginning stages of a country that is isolating itself from the rest of the world and its own people in an unprecedented fashion.”
