British family claim they are being held by ICE after accidentally driving into the U.S.

The Washington Post has an article about a family of four adults and three children from the U.K. who ended up in an ICE detention facility in Pennsylvania after they accidentally drove into the U.S.A. They were driving near Vancouver, British Columbia when they said they swerved to avoid an animal. They ended up on Boundary Road in Lynden, Washington.  They were transported to an ICE detention facility in Pennsylvania.

ICE has a different version. According to the agency, the family had tried unsuccessfully to obtain visas to enter the U.S. They had $16,000 cash with them. They were observed on survelliance cameras slowly driving through a ditch to get into the U.S. After the family was apprehended, Canada refused to take them back.
