    All of this cost is being absorbed by American tax dollars. People from other countries bring any legal items and we pay the bill.

    “Dogs sense of smell is 1000 times stronger than humans, it is proven everyday.”
    Me: Who’s a good boy! Wanna Treat!
    My dog: *Bark*
    Me: *Throws treat in front of him*
    My dog: *Sniffs next to him, then turns around looking for the treat*
    Now I’m confused if he is a dog...
    Edit: He is not blind, he can smell but not as good as other dogs can.

    If Biscuit finds something, what percentage of those that didn't declare are actually fined ?
    I'd bet less than 50%.

      And what's stopping a bug from getting here by just flying or being carried by another animal bird let's say ?

      Bird ; you good bro climb on i hear that this fat chick will cut you up and feed you to a machine .

    At least Americans officials destroy it and convert it into compost or biological fertilizers, our indian airport authorities keep those for themselves, i am not talking about illegals, they took 3 packets of lays chips from me and kept it on their desks saying that you can get those in airport food stores (and yeah for 5 times the price) when i was cleared and i looked back they were smiling and kept them in their drawers. literally theses assholes earn their free snacks this way.

    Wow he just said that we can just grab the food at stores and that we don’t need to worry about diseases.but I always do 360 check because here in New York the food most of all in BJS is always rotten, always moldy. Always some kind of mold and they get ruined so easily. Are we spoiled with spoiled food? Smh

      @The Homie You seem to be very uneducated yourself. even the drug money seized by Police is kept for the Police to fund their own police stations.

    There could also be a risk of invasive species, like they said. I also wonder if some fruit and vegetable species could be considered invasive species. Like, if someone brings in some seeds or plants and they plant it, maybe it could have horrible consequences for native species of a country.
