DHS Steps In, Blocks US Entry For Indian Pastor On Good Will Mission

By Janet Phelan

On the surface, the plan was simple and straightforward, and fueled by the best of motives. After hearing for months about attacks on growing numbers of American citizens who claim they are being assaulted with unconventional weapons, Pastor S. (name withheld on his request), a pastor at an evangelical church in India, decided to take definitive action.

His plan was to travel to the US, to meet with other pastors, including Dallas pastor Chuck Pierce, who purportedly has the ear of President Trump. S. was going to lay out the types of attacks that individuals are now reporting and ask the President to make sure that the intelligence agencies stop their non-consensual testing of these weapons, including microwave and sonics, on selected American citizens.

What Pastor S. did not gamble on, however, was the massive surveillance apparatus of these intelligence agencies, which apparently swung into gear in order to effectively stop him in his tracks.

S. flew into Dallas International Airport on September 4, buoyed by the prospects of a potentially successful good will mission. He didn’t get any further than the airport, however. He was stopped upon deboarding and subsequently interrogated and detained by Customs and Border Protection for over 24 hours. His visa to the US—previously good until 2020—was summarily canceled and he was put on a plane back to India, by way of Dubai.

No meetings with Chuck Pierce and no meetings with Trump. Pastor S. reports that he was held in a cell and denied appropriate food for over 24 hours. He also states he was denied access to the Indian Consulate and also forced to pay for his trip back, contrary to protocols. His return ticket—for about a month later—was not honored by Emirates Airline and upon landing in Dubai, where he was to change planes to India, he was threatened with arrest if he did not pay for that flight.

Upon reaching his final destination in India, he was again threatened with arrest for non-payment of the ticket. He reports that his luggage and passport were seized by Emirates Airline, as collateral until he paid the full fare.

CBP has protocols in place for the removal of an unwanted person. The press office for CBP stated:

According to the Immigration and Nationality Act, a traveler who arrived at a U.S. port of entry and is ordered removed shall be removed by the owner of the aircraft on which the traveler arrived to the United States. The law further states that the owner of the aircraft on which the traveler arrived in the United States shall pay the transportation costs of removing the traveler.

Emirates appears to have taken unusual steps in violating this Act. When contacted concerning reports that Emirates staff had threatened S. and had seized his belongings, Emirates issued this terse statement:

We do not discuss individual passenger cases for privacy reasons. Emirates has no jurisdiction over decisions made by the authorities when it comes to visa and entry requirements.

According to CBP, Pastor S. was denied entry because “he intended to work” in the US and his visa disallowed this. CBP states that “A valid visa does not guarantee entry into the U.S. There are many reasons for a person to be denied entry. In this case, CBP officers determined that Mr. ******* was traveling with a tourist visa but intended to work which is not authorized when visiting the U.S. as a tourist.”

However, S. maintains that there was no gainful monetary aspect to his trip to the US. He also denies the assertion by the press office at CBP that he was given the opportunity to contact the Indian Consulate.

According to the Pastor, he was offered only red meat to eat during his detention in Dallas, which for religious reasons he declined. Upon arriving back in India, he was so weak from lack of nourishment that he was hospitalized (he is diabetic).

According to NSA whistleblower Karen Melton Stewart, who helped raise funds for this mission to the US, he has gone into seclusion in India in order to recover from the mistreatment.

Stewart states that he is now traumatized. “He has been here four times before and was treated quite well,” says Stewart. “This time, he was treated like a criminal.”

The Indian Embassy has requested a statement from the Pastor concerning his treatment in Dallas.

Increasing numbers of individuals are now claiming assault by unconventional electronic weapons. The targets now include several former intelligence officers, who apparently fell afoul of the mandates of their agencies. A recent mainstream news report states that US diplomats in Cuba were also assaulted by sonic weapons, which buttresses allegations which had previously been consigned to the “conspiracy culture.”

  1. Welcome to America pastor. The land of the not so free!

  2. Thank you Janet for your informative article. People need to know what is going on here in the US. This is shameful behavior by our government agency. Nice way to treat a visitor from another country. CBP (customs border patrol) I believe is under the umbrella of DHS(department of homeland security). That being said I guess DHS really views Pastor S as some sort of terrorist but I really believe they are protecting and hiding the fact that weapons as such mentioned are being used on US citizens. We need to continue at the very least to voice our displeasure and when possible protest in other venues.
