Mariel Rodriguez was detained for three hours by Homeland Security agents at New York City‘s John F. Kennedy Airport upon arriving at the said airport Friday (Thursday in NYC). Mariel Rodriguez was picked up by the Homeland Security agents upon disembarking from her Delta Airlines flight. Mariel then revealed that she holds a United States passport and is also a US Citizen, and is amused why she is being detained despite being a US citizen. Mariel confirmed the incident on her Twitter account:

“Yes was questioned hehehe. They were waiting for me outside the plane. Akala ko VIP ako hahaha!”

“Funny part is, I’m a US citizen 🙂 hehehe. Of course okay pa rin.. delayed 3hrs na homeland security pa only means I will have a great trip.”

Mariel Rodriguez was suppose to be accompanied by husband Robin Padilla but was denied a US Visa. Mariel is in the US to be with her US-based father, who will undergo heart surgery. Photo credits: Mariel Rodriguez IG.
