Korean Pop Group Claims Entry Denied Because CBP Officer Believed Them to be Sex Workers
Members of the Korean singing group Oh My Girl were denied entry to the US at LAX airport in Los Angeles and the group is claiming a CBP officer wrongly identified them as inadmissible because they were prostitutes. A CBP official is denying this saying the group had the wrong type of visa to enter the US. The official, who spoke to Flyertalk anonymously claims the singers tried to enter the US on the Visa Waiver program claiming to be tourists but were really in the US to perform. Some believe that the group mistook CBP’s references to illegally working in the US to being “working women”.
