So to keep it short but detailed, I am Canadian and been travelling to the USA over the years for pleasure.
A few years ago, I wanted to visit a friend in Saudi Arabia, so I booked a flight that was going from Canada to the US(layover) and then saudi airline from USA to Saudi Arabia. After going through security and all that and about to board the plane in Canada, they tell me that you are not allowed to go to Washington DC where the layover is.
I filed a FOIA asking why I was denied entry to the U.S but all I got was my travel entries into the USA, no detail why I was told I can't go to the USA.
My question is does anyone know what the reason could be? If I was not able to go to Saudi, would that make sense why the USA denied my entry to Washington because USA would be a layover destination?.
Feel free to ask me questions, my son is in the USA working and I would like to visit him so trying to find an solution.
Am I able to just book a flight to the USA and see if it happens again?
