I just went to PR to spend Christmas with my family and yes in the last two times I have gone home I have to get my ID identification in my hands they have signs all over letting you know what you need to have in hand.

I think Is customary since 9/11, now this is when you are about to check in your language at the airline counter no when you get off the airplane.

It is annoying alright, but more annoying is when you come back like me from PR and have to check you luggage two times because the customs duty. Looking for drugs I guess.

Yes you have to show ID to fly.

Here is the real immigration issue, according to a news account this morning and I can't find it. Guy from Mexico wants to come to the US, his sister is here and a citizen, he goes on a waiting list. The list, with backlog, is 100 years long, seriously WTF.


Fake.

Source does not jive.



I offered no source, couldn't find it. Immigration lawyer from KC, I have no legitimate source. Morning radio show on a conservative channel.

Oh no, they don't call it looking for drugs, but more like looking for any type of food items that can not be taken to the US or something like that.

But if you travel to PR when coming back make sure you hide anything that you don't want to be taken away from you, because they have a room just for that purpose, before checking your luggage at the counter, once you have their ticket of approval, then you can proceed to check in, Funny, because I love to bring all kind of goodies, you know, Rum, lot of coffee and home made sweets and food.

We didn't have any back in the days, but since 9/11 you have to get your luggage ex ray before checking in at the airline counter and get a sticker.

Interestingly this doesn't happen when you travel to PR only when you comeback to mainland.

Got you. We face the same thing flying from Hawaii back to California.... They sometimes use beagles to sniff out produce

Yes they do, randomly, walk around with the dogs but I have never seen any of them sniffing anything or finding anything when I been traveling.

Now, two years ago when we went to PR in the summer, my husband was flashed and they took his fingerprints and made him get into the x ray machine.

I tell you it was not a very pleasant experience for him.

For people complaining about been asked for paper how about been fingerprinted I try to ask the agent why they were do it that and he ignored me.

I flew to DC from MO, they xrayed all my stuff, and searched me, how was your experience any different, has been like this since 9/11

I have no problems, but my husband was the one that was fingerprinted, they made him put his finger in a reader.

And not answer when asking why from the agents.

I havn't flow in a while but last time it was required to board the plane and when checking in with the ticket to have an ID. TSA surely wants an ID as did the check in area with metal detectors before the TSA implementation nationally.

Thank-you! That would explain why my 85 year old Mother-In-Law was taken into a room at Dallas airport and strip searched last year. She has nothing with her photo on it.

And thank YOU, DreamingAwake. Perhaps I just don't remember showing anyone an I.D. in 2014.

You mean someone travelling without a photo ID?

You know my husband travels all the time on business in the US at least once a month, never had any problems, but going to PR is another story. I don't know why, he knows that IDs are required no matter what.
