Customs is the step after that where you give the blue form to an official that might let you go right away or may decide to open your bags and fo thru your stuff.
In another forum a guy was complaining because they sent him to a room and opened all hia bags while having priority pass and amex told him that they get expedited arrivals, but they still have to do the customs which most cases is pretty fast but if you're unlucky t
they'll go over your whole luggage even putting out your undies (very embarassing!!)
And I was told if you give too much lip or complain while going for a full search and you have Global Entry, it will be revoked permanently. As others have said, GLobal Entry only expedites the process and if a search is still needed, you must comply. I used Global Entry in Vancouver and I was through the 45 minute line in less than 2 minutes.
