Has anyone had experience with officers at a port of going through your phone, or requesting to? I was using a work visa a few years to come into the country (from Toronto), and that happened to me...felt like quite the invasion of privacy, over and above the invasion of privacy one should expect and accept in secondary inspection. And it was awkward for him to go through my contacts, ask me how I know them, or when he went through my email/texts and asking what some meant. Especially when he found one embarrassing, sexual-related email, read it out loud and said "this is provocative." Like, none of your business. Is this still common? Anyway to refuse it and still be let in (as a non-US citizen)? I'm open to almost anything else in terms of inspection, questioning, interviewing, searching my person and my luggage, etc, but going through the personal contents on my phone seems excessive and painful. It should be said that of course I have nothing to hide or fear. I have entered lawfully, with inspection, dozens of times. But haven't re-entered in the last 4 years. This is about limits to the invasion of privacy, not trying to hide anything.
KeratNY posted a topic in Working & Traveling During US Immigrationhttps://www.justanswer.com/immigration-law/bafed-meeting-uscis-tomorrow-regards-getting.html Look at this poor sap who got married, filed for AoS for his wife, then a few months later they left the country to do a Catholic wedding ceremony, and upon trying to re-enter the US, the wife was denied because she left without having advance parole approved. They thought they would be ok because their green card interview date was for later that same day! It is not unreasonable, if one does not know any better, to think CBP would let you into the country to attend your residency interview that day, but one more reason why it pays to understand this process fully. I feel sorry for them, they must be in so much pain and kicking themselves. A good reminder that we are lucky to have found this site to avoid such mistakes.
