Extra screening at immigration

Jump to last reply

Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else.

Two trips ago flying CDG-ORD I was stopped at immigration, had my passport taken, and was escorted by the border police for extra screening in a separate room. I was not amused, but figured it was just random and my number came up. After being delayed for what seemed forever, but was probably only 20 minutes, I was free to go and thought nothing more about it.

Last trip, again flying CDG-ORD, again the same thing happened. This time I was less than amused, quite pissed off actually, but politely asked why this has now happened twice in a row. I didn't get any answers, just told to apply for Global Entry (not worth the annual fee since I only leave the country but once per year).

I am nearly ready to book another trip to Paris, but knowing that I will likely be stopped once again at immigration really makes me think twice about it.

Any help, ideas, or suggestions welcome.
