There was that story on tv of a girl and boy from the netherlands who has a visa for the US, but they overstayed because of weatherconditions.
So at the Mexican border they were arrested and put in jail for about a month! No kidding!

Is this heard of more and on a regular basis?
Or was this just a once in a lifetime happening of some frustrated border guards?

Quoting mikeyBoab

What was the point of putting them in jail?

Overstay.
They have to prove the reason caused them to stay more than the expire time of their visa.
Its something normal.
We know what happened to them , watching the movie.
But the government doesn't know it.
but the prison period should not take too much , as long as no crim has been proven by them.
