DHS watchdog: DHS can search all your devices within 100 mi of US border – Boing Boing

The DHS office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties — a watchdog that’s supposed to keep the DHS in check — has concluded that it’s fine for the DHS to stop anyone within 100 miles of the US border, without any suspicion or warrant, and search all the data on all their devices. But they won’t say why:

A year ago today.  Still on the books.  And hey:  Who was it that created the Department of Homeland Security?

Oh, that’s right.  George W. Bush.

Thanks, George!

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
