Q&A: stopped at Customs

Q&A (2015-16)Allan BlutsteinComment

Q.   My wife and I travel as missionaries to other countries and in Nov. 2014 we were coming back into the country from Africa and were held by the Customs at Atlanta.  I do not have anything wrong on my record and I do not want to be held up this year as we travel again.

A.  See the following information from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection about requesting records concerning yourself with respect to screenings at airports and other transportation hubs.
