    Exclamation New Border rules as of June 01 for re-entry to U.S.

    As of June first a passport is required for U.S. and Canadian citizens entering the U.S. by land, sea or air.

    Didn't think anyone would want a nasty surprise when heading home, so I thought I'd post this.

    This is a U.S. rule, so don't blame us for it!

    My ambulance company sent out a request for EMTs with passports last week for a trip to Canada, and I was like, "What?!?"

    I guess they were on top of more than I am. But then again I never leave the good old USA.

    Everyone please remember this is American rule. You do not need a passport to enter Canada or Mexico. It is a U.S requirement for re-entry.

    Had a fellow in the shop yesterday who had just returned to the U.S. on Tuesday through Port Huron, Michigan. He indicated that they had stopped him specifically because of his NRA sticker and wanted to see his concealed carry permit. They were assuming that he had weapons - which he didn't - and when he said he didn't have a permit, their response was that "you're lying, all NRA members have concealed carry permits".

    I wish he could have said that "if that were true, it would prove that NRA members are showing that they follow the rules." Then, if I were in his spot, I probably would have been so intimidated that I wouldn't have been able to say anything.

    By the way, he also said that the border hassle and concentration on his NRA sticker has gotten even worse since the "oops, that's not what we meant" report about domestic terrorists from Janet Napolitano.

    This the US customs asking about the NRA stickers? Did you send a report to the NRA? Ask for the badge number of the officer so the NRA can call his manager.

    My wife is Malaysian, getting through the border is always interesting, but I have to say the US Custom people we have dealt with so far have been excellent.

    I don't know if the fellow will be back in the shop again - hope so. If he comes by I'll encourage him to contact the NRA with this issue. That's a good idea. If it happens to me, I will certainly try to 'take names and numbers'. I've since been told that the Port Huron entry is especially nasty to people who cross and more so if you have any 'subversive' stickers on your vehicle. NRA and Harley were mentioned as being a double whammy.

    CBP Officers don't have badge numbers.

    It's actually not a requirement. A U.S. Citizen cannot be denied entry into the United States for any reason. We have a right to be Here. Returning after doing something bad might give Us a cell, but We will be let in.

    When you show up to the POE without a passport, you're probably going to get hassled, may have to wait around fifteen extra minutes, and in the future there might be fines involved, but you are still going to get in.

    So long as a USC enters without any merchandise it's technically perfectly legal to go around the POE and never see anyone official.

    Don't let the Gov't and the media B.S. you.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
