Am I flagged?
A few months ago a family friend had asked me to drive him to Buffalo for a family reunion. I had nothing better to do, so I did (I had done State side trips with him in the past with no problems). Now while trying to cross the border, we got sent into secondary and the family friend was being questioned by the CBP. It turned out that he had lied and was actually going there for work which he had not told me about. He was deemed inadmissible and was given a 5 year ban from entering the States. Now, no one from the CBP spoke to me or said anything. I literally sat there the whole time without being spoken too. On the way out the friend was told he can petition their decision. I asked if there was anything I had to do and the CBP officer said that every time I cross I might be scrutinized and may be denied entry depending on how the officers feel... I haven't been back since but I need to make a few trips in the upcoming months and was thinking of applying for a nexus card. I don't know if I've actually been flagged because I wasn't given any paper work and no one had actually said a word to me until we were shown the way back to Canada. I was just wondering if anyone had a smilier experience or had any knowledge of this kind of scenario and may be able to provide some feedback.
