Passengers Demand Answers Following Intense Customs Scrutiny at JFK Airport

When Kelley Amadei disembarked from Delta Flight 1583 with her wife and son, she didn't expected to be greeted by two Customs and Border Protection agents standing at the jet bridge entrance.

As the plane taxied to the airport gate late Wednesday, Amadei felt like something wasn't right -- a flight attendant told passengers to have their travel documents ready for inspection before leaving the plane.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman said they were looking for a specific person Thursday afternoon.

The spokesman added that the CBP does this regularly, and that the process started after 9/11. He said this case was a little different because they didn't have a picture of who they were looking for, just a name.

They requested identification from every passenger on a domestic flight.

Let that sink in for a moment...

6. That's bullshit that they would show up on a DOMESTIC flight arrival

And ask EVERY passenger to show ID?

I've never had to show my ID upon landing after flying cross country. I've got almost a million miles on United and several hundred thousand miles flown on Delta.

An SFO to JFK ain't supposed to end like that.

This is all Trump BS.

9. Seriously they think regularly. A freaking million miles never had that shit happen.


Back and forth to Australia, never freaking once. Just at port of entry, that's it.
