In a post on Facebook hours ago, ex-beauty queen and former Nollywood actress turned U.S based nurse wrote;
“15 years in America as a green card holder, i never felt any type of pressure to change status, all these years until Trump came. I always thought the blue passport was not necessary afterall i was still nursing big political ambitions for Nigeria.
I never cared for the inconvenience of being separated from the rest of my family who are all Americans to boot, ( except Stephy who is French) when ever we had to pass through immigrations on our many travels. And then Trump and his extreme vetting policies which by the way folks is no joke.
“Questions like forsaking all royalty and titles, will you bear arms for the country, when and why did your name change from Imaobong to Regina, have you ever been arrested, do you have any criminal records, do you owe money under a different name, when did you first come into America, when and where did you get married, how many times have you been married, what was your entry point into the country ( to ensure I did not float over on a log or scurry over in a tunnel). Why does your adopted daughter have the same name as you ( africans know its a thing of honor to have a child named after you), what is your source of income, what outstanding fees do you owe ( at this point my heart flutters, maybe Great Lakes has told them things about school loans). I was surprised they didn’t ask if I was born female.
Anyway after all said and done….. I got a handshake and walked out of there as
