URGENT! Canadian Studying in USA awaiting reinstatement. Can I travel through Border Patrol stations?
Hello everyone, I'm a Canadian student currently studying at a University in the greater Los Angeles area . I recently transferred from a Californian community college but I accidentally transferred my I-20 to my new school 1 day too late after the grace period for transferring had ended. I sent in all the requirements for the reinstatement and am waiting to hear back.
But here's the thing, I went to school in Arizona a few years back before changing majors and frequently travel to and from Phoenix to visit close friends.
There are multiple Border Patrol checkpoints scattered along Interstate 10 and 8. I've been through these checkpoints multiple times and have never had a problem with them but now i'm worried because I'm in the reinstatement process. Is it okay to travel through these while awaiting reinstatement? My DSO at my new school has also issued me a temporary I-20, does his make things better?
Please let me know. Thank You!
