I don't have advice but what kind of trouble - what do they say to you? What happens when you return to the country? I thought they just let people with green cards pass right through! :o

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

I also agree, it all depends on what kind of problems you've had with them. And it also depends on the officer processing your entry and POE in all honesty. My mom is a US citizen but was born in Colombia and never had any issues when coming in through Miami. Once she had to go through Houston and they were really mean and nasty to her because she had her high blood pressure medication in her carry on. The guy took everything out of her suitcase and told her it was "standard" procedure because her flight was coming in from Colombia. Once his supervisor saw this, he told him to calm down and walk away.

The last officer said I should check www.cbp.gov (that does not help in any way)

What happens is: I always get pulled out to the HS interrogate office and they always ask the same question: what happened in 2004? I had one day overstay in 2004 (91 instead 90 day visa waiver). So and with being a green card holder I thought this should be forgiven by now... I'm just looking to who to talk to to stop that. I'm afraid one day they tell me to return wherever I'm coming from. But my home, son and husband are here... Getting pretty frustrated - sorry :blink:

yes, actually, any previous overstays are forgiven when you get your green card through marriage to a US citizen and you adjust your status from within the US. Basically, since they have that ' one day overstay' on file you may find that they will continue to question you for a while. The best you can do is keep your cool, calmly respond that you overstayed the visa by one day due to such and such a reason (ie transportation problems, etc.), but immigration has already addressed this issue when they approved your green card. I expect you will be off of the radar soon. Best to just recognize that some of them are going to be jerks and keep your temper. If you get argumentative or aggressive with them they may just get argumentative back and you don't need that. Good luck.
