Does anyone know if you are required to use the kiosks for immigration or can you skip them and go directly to the secondary screening area? Due to the highly common name of my husband (and the fact that a known criminal shares the same name), my husband always (100% so far) receives an "X" on the kiosk printout at immigration. We may apply for Global Entry for future travel but we are headed to Canada in two weeks so its the usual immigration process for us this time around. And, unfortunately, we will not be flying out of an airport in Canada that has a US Immigration station. Unfortunately, we get the honor of clearing at JFK!
