It’s long past time to disband the CBP, and repeal the appalling provisions allowing detention and search with no probable cause beyond “hunches” anywhere within 100 miles of the border, effectively stripping 4th amendment (and as this piece makes clear, 1st Amendment) rights from 80% of the population. The Patriot Act and the rest of the Bush/Obama surveillance state is incompatible with democracy and civil rights. It needs to be systematically dismantled.

One would think that all of those Gun Advocates that claim the 2nd amendment there to protect against tyranny and the violation of Constitutional rights would be out there front and center demanding these travesties end.

They are not doing so because it not their rights being stripped away. It the rights of brown people or “Anti-American Communists”.

I try to avoid crossing the border. They are at war with everybody.

Thank you. This hidden behavior by this government is unacceptable.

Not everybody. They won’t bother me!!! I’m already on a watch list.

Sue to eliminate one watch list,…, or all of them?
