We recently visited NY 10th Jan - 14th Jan. My son & I have a Aussie Passport , my husband UK. My son & I had no problems but my husband had to go to another room for some reason they could not stamp his passport - no reason given. We waited in this room filled with various other travellers from many different countries. 2.5 hours later my husband was called to collect his passport no questions were asked of him still don't know why we had to wait all that time and no explanation given. The manner in which these officers spoke to other travellers was disgusting! I have never seen such a bunch of unhappy employees in my life! No one dared speak back to them in the fear of not being allowed into NY. Who do you complain to? Will anyone listen? I understand how serious they have to be with immigration issues but they spoke to some of the people like animals.
If they had spoke to my husband like that I am sure he would have told them where to stick their country! Rest of the holiday was good will post trip report soon. Wonder if anyone else experienced this behaviour?
