Re: Entry Reg's n Rules

We just drove to Houston TX. From Portland OR, by way of LA. I am a US citizen my friend has his card but is from Sri Lanka. The El Paso boarder patrol was very interested in something in the car. Granted we had it packed with boat gear (the boat is already there) some of which was spices, so one of the dogs 'found something of interest' in the car we were asked to park and wait inside. I found it interesting that I was not asked for my I D but Ajit had to show his and answer questions. After they went though things we were alowed to leave, we asked what it was that the dog had ,hit, on but were given a very vauge answer that it might be anything. the next time we stopped we looked, there was some dried fish in a vacum pack that had been moved out of the sealed box. Maybe they nee to feed the dogs more often

When I arrived at the border from Canada to get to the railway yard where the machine was parked I realized that I had forgotten my ID (no passports required back then post 911). Fortunately had bill of sale for equipment ($$$) and as I was already in the lane to booth (couldn't turn back) apologized to officer stating the situation and told him I would turn around and go back. "No need" he stated. He just radioed over to main building and explained that I would be coming over to fill out affidavit identifying myself after he inspected bill of sale and brokerage doc's that I was carrying for the machine. Went through with no problem.

In 2009, after spending some time in Cuba on my boat berthed in Varadero returned to Canada with no luggage and spent 2 hours in the "room" as this raised unreasonable suspicion in the Canadian Customs eyes. Finally got tired of there nonsense and refused to answer there questions and stated either arrest me or let me go whereupon they let me go. Born Canadian citizen with Passport in hand.????
