Yes it's an I-I94 card. It's the size of a credit card but made of cardboard material. I have one stamped in my passport like RiCh says that's valid upto 6 months and you don't usually have to go in for secondary if your reasons for travel are valid enough for the CBP officer to believe and let you go the first time.
But always carry the waiver letter with you when going to the border don't just rely on the card.
It's not always secondary, but it is up to an CBP officer for your reasons for visiting and you need your passport obviously so they can staple a little card which is usually valid for 6 months so you don't always have to pay the $6 and go inside for secondary.
Keep your waiver with you at all times when crossing the US border.... I've seen some nightmares with people explaining they forgot it or lost it.
The I-94 permit, which costs $6, allows visitors to travel further than 25 miles from the border and remain in the U.S. for more than 30 days.
By U.S. law, a foreign traveler must possess his or her entry documents, and if required, the I-94 permit, with them at all times while in the United States.
In addition, at checkpoints, U.S. Border Patrol agents check foreign travelers for entry documents and the I-94 permit. Travelers not in possession of their entry documents and an I-94 permit may have their visa cancelled and be deported from the United States.
