Yes - you clear immigration at your first port of entry in the US. After that, your connecting flight will be like a regular domestic flight, with no immigration or customs to worry about.


The initial mystery that attends any journey is: how did the traveller reach his starting point in the first place?

You will hand in your paperwork at immigration when you land in the USA, and then go to your connecting

flight. It is pretty easy.

Make sure that there is a good amount of time between the arrival of your first flight, and the departure of your connecting flight. You don't know how long it will take to process your documents, and a favorite method of questioning used by USCIS is to delay you until you are about to miss your connecting flight, hoping you will tell them something in desperation in order to make your connection.

Sometimes I think they cause you to miss your connecting flight just for their own entertainment.

rncarterjm,

Where is the connection - in the USA?

In any event, "the first point of entry" is the only point of entry. After that you're not entering, you're already in.
