I did ride SB into the new Niagara Falls, NY facility. The procedure was similar to what it was before. Basically everybody gets off, clears customs, and waits in the station until the train is cleared and you reboard.
On leaving Toronto, everything but one Amfleet I coach and the cafe/BC were locked off. Upon reboarding, most of the train was open (there was one coach that stayed locked off until Albany) and the longer distance passengers were directed into other coaches (which were mostly Amfleet IIs, IIRC) based on destination. You were instructed to take everything with you when deboarding for US Customs.
