Canadian without passport granted entry into the US with his iPad

Normally, a copy of identification is not sufficient to gain entry into the United States, but for whatever reason, Reisch was briefly detained, then allowed to continue his trek into the US with his scanned passport on his iPad. US Customs official have not issues a statement on the matter, so we don’t advise attempting to hop any US boarders armed with only your iPad just yet.

That US customs agent should be imprisoned or fired at least it's that easy to get terrorist or drugs into the country when our own customs agents do crap like this or perhaps the whole story is a bunch of BS

why should the agent be fired? If Mr. Reisch has an official digital copy that can be scanned and verified and proves hes legitimate why shouldn't he be granted entry to the US? And another thing it's only a matter of time before everyone starts using digital passports sooner or later the paper ones will be banned if anything paper passports are easier to fabricate just like fake I.D's

In this age and time, I think one still needs proper document, LOL, just for the fun of it: with hollywood make up and fake scanner digital documents which you couldnt steal from its owner, you can easily go thru..... Myb in 10 years time when we ave proper security for digital passport, but for now, we don't and i think he should be fired as well #JustMyOwnOpinion
