Tale Of Two Canadians

Two Canadian drug users.  This blog has reported that Canadian Justin Bieber, a criminal and drug user, has been allowed to enter and remain in the United States despite the fact that immigration law prohibits drug users from entering or remaining in the United States. Now another Canadian drug user is in the news.  Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was refused entry to the United States, presumably because he is a drug user.

Rob Ford 'Turned Back' From US On Way To Rehab
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford turned back after landing in the US last week, shortly after he announced he was entering rehab, say media reports.
The Canadian consulate said he "voluntarily withdrew" his request to enter the US after talks with border officials in Chicago.
His lawyer and brother have said he is now in treatment for substance abuse, but they refused to say where.
Mr Ford admitted to using crack cocaine in a "drunken stupor" last year.

The article stated that Ford "voluntarily withdrew" his "request" to enter the United States.  The technical term is that he withdrew his application for admission and signed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Form I-275.  But the reason he withdrew his application for admission is that Ford was informed that he would be refused admission and would either be removed by expedited removal or placed in removal proceedings before an administrative judge in the Executive Office For Immigration Review (EOIR).  Given those options, Ford obviously decided it would be better for his political career to just go back to Canada and get drug treatment there.

The problem is why Ford, the drug user, was refused admission by CBP, and why Bieber was allowed to enter the United States despite being caught by CBP in a plane that was filled with marijuana smoke?  It does tell us that the Obama Regime has been administering immigration law in a manner that is inconsistent with the law itself.
