Los Angeles, New York and Washington's international airports have their customs officers processing passengers documents manually due to the Customs and Border protection systems experiencing 'issues.'
The cause of the shutdown is yet unknown, with the agency saying they were working to identify the problem.Photos on social media showed huge lines of passengers at the airports waiting to be processed.John F. Kennedy Airport in New York said it was starting to use backup computers systems, adding that people were still being processed, “but slower.”
