An outage of the US Customs and Border Protection's processing system led to delays Monday night for global travelers arriving in the US.

In a tweet from DFW Airport: 'there is a system issue affecting processing times for customs.

Several major airports experienced a "temporary outage with its processing systems" for about two hours, according to an agency spokeswoman. "At this time, there is no indication the service disruption was malicious in nature", it said.

On the flip side, Sweat and Simmons would love nothing more than to make a Cardinal other than Jackson beat the Bulldogs' defense. The No. 4 Bulldogs were without a head coach, offensive or defensive coordinator and their usual starting quarterback.


Global travelers at multiple airports took to social media Monday evening express their displeasure after they faced delays and long lines during processing.

Meanwhile, the Denver International Airport on its Twitter page confirmed that CBP was facing a computer issue Monday night and warned travellers arriving from international destinations that they may experience delays. Seems like their system did completely go down. A similar computer outage occurred a year ago.

Other affected airports included John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Miami International Airport, according to media reports and the airports' social media posts.
