    As long as you didn't receive a phone call or letter saying it will be a year wait they are processng you. You just have to wait for your name to reach the topp of the call out list.

If we procees 50,000 people in a week, 1% of that is 500 people. We don't arrest, seize(drugs, money, merchandise), collect duty, ER, from 500 people if we procees 50,000. So, that would mean 99% are allowed to enter the country which would be considered law abiding.. I'm not saying our job isn't important. I was just pointing out the vast differences at working different Poe.
      I agree.

      99% of traffic is functionally legit...pretty much in every port. I guess a person could argue particulars and play with the definitions of what constitutes a meaningful violation or the nature of a 'traveler"...but no matter how it's presented it's still going to be a rather small percentage of meaningful violations and violators.

      • Miami is a huge port. Large enough to pretty much ignore the normal course of business and do much of what they want to.

        I'd be very surprised if Miami goes the next 2 plus years without a single street hire.

        Have said that, they agency has stated that they will be hiring future hires based on port needs, current employee movement, and training/ learning opportunities available at a port.

        Places like Miami should still be options for new hires...but I wouldn't be surprised if the chances to direct hire into smsller places like Pittsburgh, Hartford and San Jose more or less dry up.

                        • Anyone know if ports will be opening up soon other than what's been on there?

                          • There is no way of knowing. All we know is that the commissioner stated that southwest ports and especific northern border ports will be the hiring priority. I would recommend to apply for one now. Then reaply if something better opens up. As long as you are ok with it. I know everyone circumstances are different.
