    A Florida family traveling from Israel to US caught with veggies in one of the kids backpacks. A tomato, apple & 3 cucumbers which the mother said was snack food, was inadvertently or deliberately, who knows, overlooked by the parents upon arrival to Newark International.

    Anyway, they were caught and fined $300 by CBP.

    Seems like an over-reaction to me but then why am I not surprised?

    Those $300 fines are like beating people until the morale improves. Welcome home, serfs. :rolleyes:

    Once we get TSA fixed or disappeared, TUG's next major area of focus likely will be immigration & border controls.
