The Waiting Room | Christian Allaire | Hazlitt | 24 July 2018
Notes from a detention room at JFK, where a Canadian passport holder waits for TSA officials to recognise that, as a First Nations citizen, he is entitled to live and work in the US. “I wish I could say this is my first time here, but it isn’t. I’ve sat in this exact chair about five times. I brace myself for the long line of questioning. The TSA officer continues to stare at me. I pause and catch his gaze. ‘Sorry’, he says. ‘I’ve never seen an Indian so pale'”
