Things to keep in mind when working as a father recently

 

When you're a dad for a long time, you're bound to run into trouble.

Of course, in my case, most of the problems are small.

That's why I don't worry too much about it, and since it's a small problem, it doesn't affect my mental health.

Even though I'm like that, I've recently thought that I should be careful about this.

This may have been a hot topic in the news recently.

It's a so-called father's overseas trip.

Here, I would like to tell you from my experience that when I travel overseas with my father, I have never had any trouble at all.

However, what I want to talk about here is the case of local gathering.

Especially if you are going to America, you should be very careful.

eh?Why?There are probably many women who are active fathers who have this question.

However, this is just a glimpse of what I actually experienced the month before last.

I bought a plane ticket with the plan to meet my dad in LA.

First of all, the reason was that I originally had a friend there, and I wanted to meet up with her for a few days before joining up with her dad.

For that reason, I left Japan a week earlier than my father.

In Japan, I had already completed my ESTA registration, and was confident that I would not be stopped at customs, so I casually embarked on an elegant journey in business class.

Then, when I actually arrived in LA and showed my passport to enter the country, the police officer looked strange.

I'm not the type of person who travels overseas that often, so my face may have looked a little strained. (Don't you get nervous when you show your passport at immigration? I always hate that atmosphere.)

And the interaction goes like this.

"Why did you come to this country? Why aren't you staying at a hotel? Please show me your return ticket. What do you do for work?"

He asked me a question like this, so I answered it as it was.

"First of all, I was able to travel. The reason I'm not staying at a hotel is because a friend lives in LA. I'm planning on staying there. I think he's across the street from the airport. My job is an office job. (I can't say I'm working as a dad.)

Then, my return ticket was stuck in my passport, and a different police officer put it on and moved me to a separate room.

To be honest, I was just anxious.

And when I look around, I see a lot of suspicious-looking Indians.

"What? Maybe I won't be able to get into America? Will I be able to get out of here safely?" Such worries were running through my head.

Then, a different police officer came from a separate room and told me the following.

"Okay? Tell me the truth. What is your purpose for coming to America?"

I wasn't lying, so when I answered it as it was, the police officer handed me a piece of paper.

"Please do not sign here."

Then, when I read the English text, I realized that it was a letter against deportation.

I thought that most normal Japanese people would probably sign if they were under that much pressure.

Honestly, I'm good at English.

So I answered like this.

"I have no intention of signing it, so please call a lawyer. I should have shown you my return ticket. What are you deporting me for? Please clarify."

When I told the other person, another police officer came in to take my place.

And this is what he told me.

"Your friend is coming to pick you up, right? Where is he?"

So I said, "I think we're already at the exit."

If you can take me there, I can prove it.

When I told him, he stamped my passport and finally let me go.

In the meantime, about two hours.

I shudder to think about what would have happened if I had signed the deportation paper there.

Surprisingly, many people don't know this, but I won't be able to go to Hawaii in the future.

The territory of the United States is surprisingly large, and once you are deported, you will not be able to enter the country until a considerable period of time has passed, which will seriously hinder your ability to travel abroad in the future.

This is because people who have been deported once can refuse to enter the country on that basis from the second time onwards.

Why did this event occur?I thought that was true after watching the Japanese news.

Recently, it seems that many Japanese people have entered the United States and are making money through prostitution.

Because of that, I was also seen as a prostitute.

Furthermore, it appears that entry into the United States for the purpose of prostitution is prohibited, and Japanese women who are a little flashy are particularly targeted for deportation.

Therefore, if you are going to the United States as a dad, it will be easier to enter the country if you don't bring too much baggage, buy it locally, or look a little calmer.

I had no idea that such a problem was happening in America right now, and if I had known, I would have dealt with it in the same way, in a low-key manner.

After all, it just feels bad to be interrogated in a separate room and have to stay there for more than two hours, right?Even though he hasn't committed any crime.

However, this is the reality that can now occur when entering the United States.

Pick me up at the airportMy friends who came were tired of waiting.

I would appreciate it if you would keep my experience in the back of your mind if you are a woman who wants to become a father and enter the United States alone.

I think it makes a big difference whether you know this or not.

But if you're traveling on a plane with your dad, these problems may be less likely to occur.

You can say anything like a couple, a co-worker, etc.

Also, I think it's easier to feel anxious when you're with two or more people than alone.

Anyway, my last trip to America was a disaster.

Later, when I met up with my dad, I talked about this and we decided to go together next time.

Also, it might be a good idea to go with friends.

I've heard that solo female tourists who are a little flashy are the most likely targets.

Nowadays, it's just a ``good memory''.
