    If you're waiting, look to your left. Look to your right. It's interesting to view the other drivers and see how they are reacting to waiting. Read their tells. Most of all, relax & have fun! ;)

    Make some extra time today to wave hello when they stop you at the border patrol. They are stopping everyone today! (Even my cat is white! Lol)

    The strategic importance of San Clemente lies in its placement at a major route of egress from the immediate border beyond the international boundary and to effect border security in the border area.

    Don't wear plaid or you'll get an extra grilling of where you're going, where you came from, why you're going where you going, why did you leave where you just left, address of destination...

    Budget cuts make this checkpoint only two lanes, just look white and not suspicious and they'll let you through haha.

    Do not wear hats or glasses over the border. Make eye contact with patrol person.

    The lamest execution of the California government. Does causing traffic really help anything?

    Why can't they just do the job at the border instead of 60 miles North?

    Today looks like they are only checking big rig trucks/ big buses. Ahora parece como solo cachean y buscan en los trucks grandes y las camionetas
