Time to move on and bash a different group or person?

So many things that are happening at a border crossing are occurring for a reason. For years there has been video and audio surveillance and the Supervisors actually are seeing/hearing all that is going on during YOUR crossing.


IF the person greets you with a smile so you will feel comfortable .... they will not see 'you' get nervous, fidgety, etc. which tips them off to send you to secondary.


Back in the day they could profile you and let ma and pa pass through. But now they must stop ma and pa to 'prove' they are not profiling.


And guess what, smugglers watch who got through easily and find folks matching that profile, or dress up and act that way, so now YOU look like THEM ....


Be thankful that some people will take these jobs and take your crap while trying to save your butt from some real bad actors. And the next time you feel offended by them ... Thank them, be kind and understanding, so maybe there day won't be quite as bad as it is .....

Oh, keep this in mind, when they are considering purchasing a trailer from ETI, or already own one, how do they feel reading these 21 pages and CANNOT (if they are currently employed by the Government) reply and help you understand what it's like to be in their shoes .... many of the reasons for what they are trained to do is confidential and supposed to 'surprise' bad actors to catch them before they cause mayhem.

Time to stop your whining and complaining and be thankful YOUR country is trying to protect YOU. There will always be a few 'bad apples' and if you are honest with yourselves ... you will admit that YOU don't always treat other folks 'perfectly' at work, at home, and on this Forum....

Don't believe everything you hear about the Border

PS. You have the right to appeal ANY action that happens to you at the border. The are plenty of Attorneys that will take you case and it won't cost you a cent IF you are right. NO 1 Federal Employee can take an action that would keep you from crossing the border, just ask to talk to the Shift Supervisor to confirm.


Any person that tells you they had to sell their house because they can't get to it is not telling you the whole story. They did do something that resulted in loss of their 'privilege' to cross and they did not appeal it, and win, through the official process.


Tip - don't trust them, it could be something as common as a US DUI which results in not be able to cross into Canada to loop back into the US for a period of time.

This particular situation was well documented and covered by the media. Basically it was a personality clash, no substantive reason for the person to be treated the way he was. Appeal process through Seattle didn't seem all that fruitful.

But let's just leave it at; border crossings as Forest Gump would have said are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.

Most tense exchange I've seen was an Arab ahead of me going through customs in Israel. Customs lady wasn't happy with his answer. He said your English use was incorrect, use the correct word and you'll get the correct answer. She said, "I use English as a courtesy to you because you don't speak Hebrew". He answered in Hebrew. It was all I could do not break out laughing which would probably have slowed down my crossing.

Yep, treat everyone with respect and hope that it's a two way street.

I try to smile and be very cooperative . There are doing a thankless and sometimes especially today ,a dangerous job . I tried to instill in my children to be respectful of authorities as I was taught . Sometimes they can be out of line but you will get a lot farther be nice yourself . Truth be told I wouldn't want their job . Pat

Looks to me like the Border crossings have become 'guard shacks' in a war zone. Most of us are just merrily driving through but a few are engaged in a deadly spy vs spy vs spy (like MAD mag). I just try to stay out of the cross fire ....

Seems like there are times things happen that we can't explain! The citizen doesn't tell the truth ... and/or the government doesn't either. Odd ducks occur.

Generally speaking the government has extensive appeal routes but it's extremely difficult to find them on your own. We need to patiently call the help line, 2 or 3 times, frustrated by the robot answering .. then the human that doesn't really know the answer but will 'give er my best shot'.

And then hire an attorney, they are cleared to see stuff we can't access. Two years is a good time frame to expect it to resolve in your favor IF you are right by them.

I'm up for about anything when it comes to beer. I hauled a 12ver of Tammys favorite 3400 miles in May. Study up on how the Japanese tried to start forest fires in Canada and the western US during WWII with incendiary devices hooked to weather balloons. They understood the jet stream way back then. Enough said.
