there are definitely some missing components to this story. My guess is she was not displaying the Queens manners and disposition.

Sure, but that would be after she was denied entry. I would like to hear the conclusion of this episode.

Just for the record, the fact someone is British or from Europe or North America doesn't mean that they should be allowed into the DR.

DR Migración: "Señor, follow me".

Señor: "What? I'm British!"

DR Migración: "Mr, don't waste my time and follow me..."
Yes. Many EU countries should do the same.

She never pulled the "I'm British!" card, she just wanted to know why they refused entry. Most of your replies are informative but sometimes you're just a lambon 🤣
A "lambon" is a mooch or a freeloader. They'll show up at a party or event where there's free food and drink, even uninvited, and eat and drink everything in sight. They will never contribute anything themselves.

"nothing on her record should stop her from entering the country" well well well... this is widely open for interpretation. Let's not forget; People being rejected entry at the airport all the time and everywhere arround the world. A Senior Immigration Agent can decide who he let's in and who not. So you better be nice ! In the US dozend's of "Tourists" are denied entry daily just for making a bad joke or having a big mouth. Some people pay a few thousand $ for a couple of Days of vacation and think they bought the entire country incl. their officials.

You definitely don't want a big, red, "Nulo" stamped in your passport. That's going to get the immediate attention of an immigration officer in whatever other country she goes to.

My immigration lawyer warned me not to argue or challenge those immigration officers
They have no immediate supervisor or superior to whom they report
Their decision stands
To resolve a dispute you must go to court

When it comes to immigration officers and entering the DR I have never experienced them being difficult. In other aspects in the DR yes. At banks. The buerocracia around business yes. But never with immigration. They seem programmed to want to make it as easy as possible. With US immigration however it’s different. You better shut up and be humble. Only say something if you are asked.

OK, I take it back. I'm not a lambon. That leaves the "baboso" alone in the room.. LOL

A lambon means a brown-nose. Someone who has their head up someone else's butt. That's how I hear it being used anyway. I don't think that's what you're trying to say here
That's exactly what I'm trying to say here 😁 For NALs the DR government can do no wrong and he has a spin for anything and everything DR Gov related. He's probably eating from Gov's plate and gotta brown-nose.

I am leaning that way myself , Had to be her ATTITUDE more than a " defective" Passport .. If she were truly a Criminal who visited Colombia and was suspected of some nefarious activities they would have handled it differently .
She looks so sweet in the photos . Im guessing she has another side to her ... the Karen side probably came out when she was pulled aside, instead of smiling and charming the people in charge she went off , and the DR Authorities would have none of it, and just shipped are back.
It would also explain why the other passengers on the Return trip treated her with Contempt ( it says that in the Article) ,, which confused me at first , they showed her NO Empathy or Pity .
the pieces definately fit .

So true. I've been dragged into secondary dozens of times and could write a book on some of the idiotic things people do back there. By far the most common is the Jetblue bros using their phones even after being warned,I enjoy the entertainment of seeing an immigration officer going up to one of these idiots after the first warning and watching them take the phone away,these guys don't take any crap nor should they,I love it.

At that crosing in the road,( in secondary) you are not really home yet, nor are you in the country you left. Time to be humble because like the game of "musical chairs" you might not have a chair to sit in tonight.
