Homeland Security Approves Seizure of Cell Phones and Laptops within 100 Miles of Border – and w/o S

The summary of a DHS report on this was finlly released but the government is mum on the whole story. Even the ACLU is upset.

“Americans have no Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures if they happen to be within 100 miles of the border, according to the “Executive Summary” of a still-secret report by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)…[T]his “Constitution free” zone… [includes] the nation’s five most populous cities: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Philadelphia.”

    This is horrendous!!! Mainly because the principle of a people free from gov’t search is destroyed. But also because of the practical application. I believe that this originated due to an issue of a U.S. citizen crossing into/out of Canada and their laptop being searched. As I recall, that search was completely unwarranted, but at least that was an actual border. With this ruling, almost all major international airports have now had their borders moved to being right next to countries thousands of miles away. This policy applies to every overseas traveler flying from Dulles or JFK or LAX or ….

    Will this be the Tipping Point between the American People vs. Obama (Liberals)?

    I believe Obama (Liberals) will be brought down to ashes over something insignificant in comparison to his American Caliphate.
