Tracking Experiences with Customs and Border Protection

The University's Immigration Response Team would like to hear about your experiences with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) when entering the United States. This voluntary reporting will help us understand how students and staff might be affected by CBP inspections, including searches of mobile devices. The form is for anyone who wants to report an experience, including immigrants and international students and scholars as well as U.S. citizens.
