Trucker's wife stuck in Canada

By Bert Case - bio | email

PEARL, MS (WLBT) - A Pearl man has been trying to get his wife back to Mississippi for more than 2 years. The truck driver took her to Canada with him, thinking she had a green card. 

Clint Brooks, 40, married his Chinese wife in 2007 in Jackson.  In June of 2008, the couple thought she had a permanent resident card. Brooks took her to Canada in his truck while he was working as an independent trucker. 

The United States would not let her back into this country saying she did not have the proper paper work and she has been stuck there ever since.  

Xiao Ping Chen is a massage therapist and has taken a job in Canada. Brooks has contacted Senator Thad Cochran's office about his problem. 

"That green card turned out to be a worker authorization card. In big bold black letters on the front it says, not valid for travel. She was legally here but now she is trapped." 

Senator Cochran's office says they are very familiar with the case. They are working on it and have corresponded with Brooks this week.  

Meanwhile, Brooks has lost his trucking business and his house in Pearl is about to be foreclosed on. 

When we asked Brooks what he thought WLBT could do about his problem, he had this response.

"Well at least you showed up, that is more than I can say for a lot of people. You actually answered the phone call and you showed up."
