“In Loving Memory of my Nephew, Benjamin Storm Keough. Today I am mostly without words, as this is a loss which has changed my life, many lives. I wish I had known how much you were suffering, and I feel great sadness that we did not get to spend healing time together. I may have more to say in coming days or weeks, for now, I am deeply shocked and totally devastated. My complete sympathy and empathy goes out to Lisa, Riley, Priscilla, and all of Ben's family and friends. I Love You dearly, July 13, 2020” - Elaine Elizabeth Presley

"I do not have a public Facebook, Instagram or a Twitter account," Presley told in an Interview. "I can’t think of anything more boring than to continuously share details of my everyday life. I'd rather be creating."
Family/Cousins are very important to me, Cousins, send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org for my details to stay connected. I Love you!

I longed to be in America ever since I was a child and never knew why. I was
convinced I needed to be in the good ole USA, and, at the time, it was just my
natural destination, something that came from inside. Of course, by this point in
my life I had previously lived in the States for two decades, yet this homecoming
was the real deal, for I was now seeking permanent status.
The plane landed in New York City, and my mind and body went into survival
mode, as I was pretty sure I would be going straight to jail due to my various
immigration issues. With regard to this possibility, the optimist within gave me a
sense of false comfort in knowing that I would then have a place to sleep and
food to eat.
So, I approached the immigration desk with the proverbial fear and trepidation,
and, guess what? I was immediately detained by the United States immigration
authorities. In the midst of the shock, but not surprise of this, I felt an
overwhelming sense of total peace because I knew who I was. Only a real child of
Elvis Presley would say what I was about to say next. The department of
homeland security took my fingerprints, and I went through extensive
interrogations for many hours. One of the first questions they asked me was,
“Who was your father?” For some reason, in my mind this took me back to my
Dad’s military days, and I sat up in the chair, proudly, and said “My father is Elvis
Presley, Sir.” After this sequence, I felt that I would be definitely headed for the “dungeon”,
and I envisioned a cold, dark, gray holding cell, and days without light. Alas,
someone was watching over me. The immigration officer then said that Elvis was
not the father that I had listed on my application from 1984, so I then stated, “I
know, Sir, I only found this out in 2013.” He asked why I was gone for so long, and
I responded that I had been very sick and had to look after not only myself but
many other people who were ill. I told him that I did not plan to be gone for so
long and that I just wanted to come back home to Graceland and to my daughter
He then proceeded to ask about my gender situation, and that was to be
expected; as a Two Spirit woman who was born both a boy and a girl, I am aware
this will be the focus of many, and for these guys it was just part of their job. He
wrote it all down and told me to go over and sit in a chair in the corner, and then
he disappeared for quite awhile. At this point, I was totally terrified that they
might not let me stay in America, and those thoughts had me heartbroken. Still, I
knew it was important that I be here, and so was totally transparent as far the
facts of my life and who my real father was. Whether they believed me or not
would have no effect on truth or reality.
Everybody in the room looked so strict and scary, and I knew that they had the
power to send me back to the UK. The original officer finally reappeared and
signaled for me to come up to his desk. He stated that he could easily put me in a
temporary jail right there in the airport. I responded with, “Yes, I know that, Sir,
but I just want to go home.”
The immigration officer then told me to go back and sit in my seat and stated that
he would be back in a minute. He went away again for about a half an hour and
then came back to talk to the guard and other staff members. The guard then
walked over to me and asked, in a kind voice, if I needed any water or whether I
was hungry, and would I “like to use his cell phone to call anyone?” I replied, “No,
thank you,” and I could feel the mood in the room had altered dramatically.
The officer then called me over to his desk again. He stamped a few papers and
then looked up at me, saying, “You know that you have an immigration hearing
coming up?” I replied, “Yes, Sir, I do.” He then stood up and said, “Welcome home, Ms. Presley,
the exit is over there.” I innately knew that somebody important must have been
speaking to them, because it went from a completely tough army environment to
big giant smiling faces with halos above their heads! Glancing back, I noticed that
all of their eyes followed me straight to the exit.
