Default Refused Entry

I am a Canadian resident for past 4 years and due to get my
citizenship by next month. I been to USA on various occasions in the
past 4 years, but i was refused entry last week when i wanted to go
for a six week vacation. The immigration officer handed me a list of
some additional documents to get like company's letter etc, but i have
my 5 yr multiple entry visa.

Could someone please tell me whether it will effect my future entry
into US, what precautions shud i take next time and If i go on a
canadian passport next time, shud i disclouse that i was refused entry
last time on an indian passport.

Thanks

You can be refused entry at any time, even if you have a visa. Just
like when you got your PR visa, you weren't guaranteed entry until you were
actually landed successfully. Obviously the inspector at the time suspected
you were a risk to remain for some reason or another. Get all required
documents.

Most likely. You have now been 'flagged'.

    > what precautions shud i take next time
Have required or suggested documentation with you.

Only if asked. Don't lie, but you don't need to voluntarily disclose
this fact.

I don't think you would be better off with canadian passport. Only US
Citizenship or US Permanent Resident Status guarantees your entry to
United States.

I disagree. A Canadian passport is less likely to cause the border inspector
to raise other issues. This is true even if "other documents" were asked for
the last time.

Asking for "other documents" is not a final refusal: it is (usually) a
non-binding indication that if the other documents are satisfactory the
traveller will be admitted.

And it's stupid to suggest that a tourist seek PR status in the USA, for
which s/he is patently ineligible anyway, on the facts given (6-week stay).

Agreed. Moroever there is only a circumstantial link between the
previous documents and the new Canadian passport so passage will
likely be smoother the next time.
