    A few years back a couple of friends went to Florida for a holiday (not sure why).

    My mate was arrested and deported within 30 minutes with a big red ‘Refused Entry’ stamp in his passport. Not useful if you want to go abroad anywhere in the future.

    american airport immigrations staff are famous for their completely absence sense of humour :noway: [amazing when you consider how much americans bleat when subjected to the same level of immigration checks others are forced to go throught to visit the US][personally I dont visit there anymore as I object to being treated as a criminal just because I wanted to visit a friend out there.]
