Don't worry Tammy. If they won't let you across and you have a craving for something, Wine,Cheese, Beer, etc. we'll get to you. Iowa Dave knows how to skin a Muskrat with an Air Compresser. We can tie it inside and float it across. How bout it Dave you in

Considering all the money that the U.S. has made because of Escapes, one would think you'd get better treatment...
I think you are wise to bypass the less than optimal border person and deal with someone higher up the ladder...go get'em!

Always make an accurate assessment of the power you hold in any Situation before you act.

Yup, treat the border agent you deal with like a loaded gun. IMHO they have an inordinate amount of power. If they bar you from entry going higher up is usually unproductive. Their decision is their decision. There are Canadians who have owned houses 5 min. from the border in Point Roberts, WA who had to sell their house because one agent in particular barred them from entry.

I agree law enforcement officers have a lot of discretionary power, but we should not fear them but respect them. Let's not forget, we pay their salaries, they work for us. Now if thry ask for a raise, that is another subject......

That's the right tack. The border officials aren't the police. They have a charter with a very specific set of responsibilities and powers. If they exceed those, the best approach is to be respectful, end the encounter as quickly and peaceably as possible, then make a complaint through official channels. Believe me, the ones who are a problem will be found out if the citizenry complains enough about them.

I would show them a lot of respect, because they do wield a lot of power.
