Travelers entering the U.S. have been growing increasingly frustrated at long security queues as immigration desk computers at various United States airports shut down for about two hours on Monday, media reports have said.
The disruption happened at several airports beginning at 6:30 p.m. and was resolved at around 8:30 p.m., according to a release from Customs.
