A: Hey there, depends on what you searched. If there is a suspected threat to National security, there could be more investigations. You have a better chance If you actually haven’t been convicted of any crimes. Also a student Visa is a non immigrant visa, so better to describe it as Entering the USA for School instead of Immigrating to the USA if asked your purpose at the border. Good luck!
