Paula Rodriguez spoke to the television station Atlanta News First for a story published on Wednesday. Rodriguez told the outlet that she arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport last Friday but was denied entry to the US by customs officials.
"They told me very kindly, 'We're so sorry, but you don't meet the requirements to enter the U.S., you've been denied entry, and you need to be sent back home to Santo Domingo,'" Rodriguez said. She was also told to spend the night at a detention center, where she would be separated from her dog.
Oh, poor little doggie!
