    "An outage impacting U.S. Customs and Border Protection computer systems is causing massive delays at airports around the United States.

    Major airports around the country tweeted that their customs systems were impacted, including John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, LAX in Los Angeles, Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, O'Hare and Midway airports in Chicago, San Francisco International Airport, and Philadelphia International Airport...

    The cause of the shutdown is unknown, and it is unclear how long it will take for this issue to resolve."

    Trifecta !!!- the very same systems had a 'temporary' nationwide outage on Jan 2,2017 and Jan 1,2018. Now this one.

    The Department of Homeland Security notes that the CBP already uses Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and Google Cloud Platform for its "Enterprise Infrastructure." Maybe they should use only one.
