Book - The Failure of Homeland InSecurity

I wrote this book to inspire and encourage other trailblazers facing crossroads in their lives to listen to their hearts - do what's right - stand up for justice. Not only will other lives be enriched, so too, will your own.

My fight with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) was long, hard and fierce. But I was sent angels. I was sent angels in the form of Whistleblower and EEO attorneys, legislators, media entities, civil rights leaders, community activists and advocates.

I remembered what my parents had instilled in me about being respectful and doing the right thing and telling the truth.

Knowing my life would change forever and realizing my decision would affect my family, impact my livelihood and derail my career, I was ready to risk it all to make a difference.

I could no longer sit idly by watching the atrocities and injustices being committed against the American public. I knew it was time to "make a stand!"

In October 1998, I made a life-altering decision. I became a Federal Whistleblower (Truth-Teller).

PICTURE THIS: You've worked hard and decide to reward yourself with a trip to a sunny destination beyond America's shores. At the end of your wonderful vacation, you board the plane for your return trip home. You arrive at the airport but instead of making your way quickly and routinely through U.S Customs and Border Protection, you find yourself being subjected to an abusive pat-down, intrusive strip-search, x-rayed, probed internally, fed a laxative and handcuffed to a hospital bed for up to 4 days. If you are an African American, especially an African American female, this scenario, it turns out, was all too likely.
