Stupid Immigration Questions In The US  
User currently offlineTonytifao From Brazil, joined Mar 2005, 1035 posts, RR: 0
Posted (7 years 8 months 3 weeks 21 hours ago) and read 8708 times:

My last two times at immigration in MIA:

1) Why do you go to Brasil every month if you are not working there? How can you afford?
I told I had a girlfriend in Brazil. Then she asked: "Why don't you find a gf in the US?"

2) My passport was not enough to let me in the country, had to show my FL driver's license, take off my cap after he looked at me for literally 2 mins. Very rude immigration officer.

Did anyone ever get questions like this or been treated this way? I have dual citizenship US/BR and I just wonder how foreigners are treated when they come to the US.

She's using more than your answers to judge you. She's using your body language, voice inflection, emotions, and eye movements to determine if you're up to no good.

Flying to Brazil once a month to see your girlfriend DOES sound a little fishy. Most people wouldn't do that.

The answers to the stupid questions aren't really important. It's just to trip up people who are up to no good.

I knew a guy who flew to South America every few weeks to visit a girlfriend too. He's currently incarcerated for drug trafficking.

Don't mind customs officers... they all tend to be ass holes no matter where you go.

You do not wear a cap on your passport / driver's licence pictures, do you?

And contrary to popular belief, wearing a cap or hat indoors isn't quite proper.  old

Quoting Tonytifao (Thread starter):

I was once asked how I intended to support myself while entering the UK, and said I would be staying in excess of three months, but had no onward ticket booked yet. I told the truth, and was let in without any further delay.

The officer isn't going to want to be bothered with extra time and paperwork if he/she doesn't think there's going to be any benefit from it. Don't give them any reason to believe there would be.

just wonder how foreigners are treated when they come to the US

From my own personal experiences, I've passed into the U.S through 10 different airports and three different road entries on 23 occasions and I'm always pleasant and polite: only once was I treated with the level of respect or dignity I should expect and that was at EWR just three weeks after 9/11. I was passing through with my Mum and my sister and the immigration officer was an example for all others to follow, making us feel at ease and treating us like fellow human beings! The rest of the time, officers are generally rude or at best, indifferent ....

IMHO, there's no need to treat every person like a potential criminal or terrorist; they should be pleasant and polite unless something about the individual gives them cuase to be otherwise. Remember, if there were no immigrants, they'd have no jobs!

I am well travelled and I have personally cut back my trips to the U.S purely for this reason so they're losing tourist $$$'s as I know others who feel similarly.

The questions on the immigration form are laughable, I mean, does the average traveller know what "moral turpitude" is? And yes, I am going to admit to my Nazi activities of nearly 70 years ago!

I was asked why I have a British passport issued in Johannesburg. I replied "because that's where I live".

Interesting difference between Europe and the US. Wonder how other countries in the world treat their citizens at passport control?

I still maintain that dressing respectably makes your life easier going through an airport. The frat boys in flip flops and shorts are going to have a much harder time than someone of the same age dressed business casual or better.

If it makes you feel any better, US citizens are treated just as rudely and indifferently as our foreign visitors.

Keep in mind that many of the CBP officers you encounter have an extreme dislike for their jobs in the "new" Department of Homeland Security. On more than one occasion when traveling on my official passport I've had a former USBP or INS agent now working as a CBP screener ask me what department I work for, and when I respond DOJ, their response is invariably "I wish we were back under DOJ."

The level of unhappiness of DHS employees is directly related to the widespread incompetent management at all levels of the that department.

Dressing smart is good, but I recommend losing the suit and tie. So many times I've seen very well-dressed gentlemen get stopped by outbound customs inspections (basically checking to see if anyone is taking more than $10,000 without declaring it) simply because they were dressed "richly".

I know they have a job to do but there is no excuse for rudeness, something I encountered at every airport in the US that I visited recently.

The man at LAX barked at me in no particular language, and everyone kept asking: "Why are you here?!" like I was trespassing on their garden or something.

The best was on my way to Toronto:

Her: "Why are you only here for 3 days?"
Me: "err there's not that much to see!"

Again, no excuse for rudeness!

This thread is the thing that wouldn't die.

Perhaps if people would start acting polite and on their best behavior when out in public then maybe they wouldn't offend underpaid and overworked TSA people. After you've listened to the 25th rant of the day from some person who feels entitled and justified because they've been able to charge a plane ticket I imagine it gets old.

And yes....they ARE looking to see what you do, and someone who goes back and forth to latin america on a monthly basis with no other story than they want to see a girl is starting to look more than passing interesting

I will second that, the most beautiful women I have ever seen are in Brasil. That is until they get old and hairy, but younger, hot hot hot.


Passing through ATL twice last month the CBP officers were friendly. They have a thankless job. I say the same to them as I say to men and women in military gear. "Thanks for serving"

TSA on the other hand, bunch of idiots.

I disagree. Unlike the result you get when being nice to an overworked airline CSR, being nice to a DHS employee invariably gets you nothing more than the same rude grunt you get if you are surly and argumentative. While there are exceptions among the front line CBP and TSA employees in the nature of outgoing, friendly and helpful people, most are anything but.

If TSA and CBP employees take their job with expectation the people "owe" them a good attitude, then they took the job with manifestly unrealistic expectations.
