Re-entering or entering USA

Something has to be done to facilitate cruisers, both US citizens and non US citizens, entering the US via water. New regulations require all aboard to present themselves to a custom officer. In most cases this is very inconvenient. Friends who returned to the US from the Bahamas at Ponce de Leon inlet were asked to go to Jacksonville. The only way would have been to rent a car and drive there. In Miami you have to go to Dodge Island, which has no public transportation to it. Lake Worth you have to rent a car. The list goes on and on. There has to be a better way. The only way to change this is through Congress. It's up to you. I wonder what everyone thinks of this.
