Passport rejected during boarding ?

My relative has a 10 year green card. He is coming back from an overseas trip, and at the foreign country airport, when the airline representative swap his passport on the approval passport machine (he said this is a US approval passport machine), it was rejected, but they couldn't tell for what reason. His passport will not expire until a few years from now, and his information on the passport matches the ones on his green card. Since his flight is not a direct flight to the US, he was given a boarding pass to go to the transit country, and was asked to re-check in at that transit country to go to the US. The airline person said that if the machine at the transit country rejects it again, there is a license US immigration officer there that can check the passport. The airline representative said this issue come up sometimes, maybe because of a software or hardware error in the machine, and most of the time at the transit country you will be able to check in. He Have you heard of a problem like this ? Thank you.

Country of origin is Indonesia.

He was overseas for 4 months.

He has made an overseas trip before, and had no problem with the passport, and this is the same passport that he used before.

It was probably a reading error, like when you go to a supermarket and swipe your club card and it can't be read. The advice received was correct. If it happens again there may be an electronic problem, either with the chip in the passport or somewhere else.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
