Some years ago, traveling via Miami to Curacao for some LACNIC events, I was asked at the Miami immigration desk to go to a separate room for some special questioning. This happened to me in several consecutive trips to Curacao and BACK to my home, no sense at all. In all those situations, I was about to lose my next flight, specially one of the times, going back to home, which will had mean waiting for 24 hours. The immigration officers told me that I’m in a kind of third security check level (don’t recall exact wording).
> I must say that all those interrogations were lacking of any kind of respect and threatening me up to the point of getting really afraid, some times even destroying parts of my belongings in my carry-on/computer bag. By the way, my TSA lock has been destroyed also several times despite it is a TSA so they have the key to open it without the need to destroying it, no sense at all, and I never got paid for it, despite I claimed.

This is not a uncommon experience. I experienced something similar in
LA on my first trip to the US several years back and almost missed my
connecting flight - reached there a minute or two before doors closed.
I was taken aside for special questioning. I had to justify why I was
there (with invite letter). I was badly jetlagged after flying almost
20 hrs.There was no access to water and officers were rude. Something
similar happened to a friend whose first port of entry was in Boston.
Thankfully further trips to the US were incident free. I hope things
have improved now.
