Hi! I am currently in the US with an H1B visa (stamped) and traveling to and from Cabo, Mexico from Feb 15-19th. Will I have any problems re-entering US on Feb 19th via Tijuana (by land)? My passport expires on July 1st, 2019.
Unlikely as Immigration requires your passport to be valid for at least six months beyond your anticipated stay in the U.S.
Do not go it alone. Immigration is one of the most complex areas of U.S. law. It is much more than merely filling out forms. You need to hire an immigration attorney to handle all immigration matters and proceedings. Consider the value that you place on your family, your home, and your work, each of which you place in jeopardy when attempting to self-navigate the complex, confusing, and often contradictory immigration legal system. Immigration law can be drastically unforgiving of a lack of knowledge or the misinformation provided by well-intentioned friends, colleagues, relatives, and blogs. Immigration attorneys exist to counsel and guide their clients through a maze of complex federal law wrought with nuances and subtleties that make each case uniquely challenging. Immigration law and the manner in which it is applied changes frequently and oftentimes with little or no notice. The governing statutes are subject to constantly evolving administrative and judicial interpretations and refinements. There is no room for error so weigh your investment in competent immigration counsel against the cost of a denied immigration benefit, a forced removal from the U.S., a separation of family, or a loss of employment or community.

Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice.
