Talk:Homeland Security's Assault on Travel
The quotation mark (") in the title of this article causes:
to appear as:
"Alexander's Choice" to Cyparissus
D.A.R.Y.L. to June 27
June 28 to Phylogenesis of pedophilia
Pierre Joubert to “HOMELAND SECURITY'S” ASSAULT ON TRAVEL
... when, in fact, the final entry is not “HOMELAND SECURITY'S” ASSAULT ON TRAVEL, but instead,
This is quite misleading, and should be addressed, shouldn't it?.
Someone I know traveled (flew) from U.S. to a European country (not England) in the first half of 2014 and there was zero problem on either end. But a cheap computer just for the purpose in case it was seized. No one even looked.
Contrast with when this same individual was on probation. Every trip there was secondary inspection. This took about 10 minutes. Probably checking for warrants. The regular immigration agents (those you show your passport to) don't have access to that database.
Once had to take everything out of suitcases, and they checked every picture on the camera. Only one on the plane to be checked.
- I think if you have a criminal record, CBP will want to search your bags every time. The CBP guy who checked my bags was actually kinda apologetic about it and was basically saying he just needed to go through the motions because they were requiring him to. He also expressed cynicism about the political system. If that had been a prelude to asking me some questions, I might have concluded that he was just trying to play good cop to establish a rapport, but he sent me on my way after that.

That hasn't been my experience, and I've made at least four international trips. This is during the period 2003-2014.
