There is a lot of good first-hand information in this rather long thread.

I have crossed at the San Ysidro border crossing on foot many times. The first few times I did not realized the far right lines are for Mexicans and other non USA citizens or US immigrants that have foreign passports only and got in these few lines inside the Custom´s building.

I could not change lines at that point.

The officers at the door were busy directing other people at the time as to which line to get into and I missed him/her,

They went very slow.

I could see the US officers scrutinizing the people for a long time. Many had other papers they were showing the officers.

In the end it appears the 2 times I waited in these lines about 65% were taken away by an officer and returned back to Mexico. Refused entrance.

Mexicans do not need to get a I-94 form if they are not traveling past the free zone in San Diego, about 45 to 60 miles from the border. The I-94 forms are processed at a small building just before the entrance to the customs building so it is hard to say what real % were denied altogether.

I presume other foreigners with passports , if there were any those days, inside the building had I-94 forms already and were just reentering the US.
