Comments : Entry was easy at Dallas, no questions asked by immigration officer.
But the security people did make me go through a "next level" luggage scan. And kept asking if I was carrying more than 10000 USD in which I was not and warned me they would go through my luggage and I would get in to trouble if i was lying. It was a bit unnerving as it seems they were trying to catch me out on something.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
