Coming from Morocco, issues with US immigration?

Hi. I'll be making some tourism in Morocco very soon. My return flight is from Madrid to Mexico City, with a connection in Atlanta. Does anybody know if I could have some kind of issue with US immigration authorities? Morocco is an Islamic* country and my passport will show I've been there (besides, I have no need to conceal the fact). My only concern: should they decide to make a secondary inspection, I could lose my next flight.

Thank you all for sharing your experiences.

*to all Islamic users and friends, I mean no disrespect with this topic, please excuse me if in any way you feel unconfortable with my question.

Becky, thank you very much for your reply. It's really helpful. Since I'm not a US citizen, I imagine I'll be asked some extra questions, but your experience makes me feel more safe. Besides, I'm not flying directrly from Morocco, but from Spain, so everything seems to be ok. Thanks again!!

TimCullis, I've checked the wiki link before posting my question, even checked the US department of State website. Both have basically the same information and are not clear about the specific topic posted.

I see you are designed as "Destination expert". Congratulations!! None the less, you are in NO OBLIGATION to relpy, nor to educate anyone about anything. These forums are created out of people's good will to share experiences and help each other, so, by all means, if you have issues answering a topic... DO NOT ANSWER, and that's it. I don`t need to know about your lack of touch to communicate with people.

That said, thanks for the info.
