    Passenger denied access into the United States based on a health record of a psychogenic disorder accessed by the U.S. Immigration Border Patrol Agents.

    Richardson, who takes medication to combat depression, said she provided the U.S. agent with the name and phone number of her psychiatrist, but it wasn't enough.

    She was told she would have to get "medical clearance" and be examined by one of only three doctors in Toronto whose assessments are accepted by Homeland Security, she said.

    This time, the agent cited the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, which denies entry to people who have had a physical or mental disorder that may pose a "threat to the property, safety or welfare" of themselves or others, she said.

    And the IOM contract will do what?
