Another take:

[...]

Since he informed agents his name was Raul Castro, officers had to check whether he was actually the new ruler of Cuba, and kid brother of brutal tracksuit-sporting semi-retired Communist dictator Fidel Castro. These brave agents may have stopped a reverse Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuban viejitos armed with tennis ball-tipped walkers.

Complying with the Show Me Your Radiation Levels law, Castro was forced to show why his car had set off radiation alarms. USBP agents might have suspected Castro was smuggling a “Dirty Mexican Bomb.” Agents did not report whether his car had the left turn signal on unnecessarily.

[...]

After being subjected to further radiation tests, it is not known whether carbon dating tests were also applied. Though Castro is the oldest living U.S. governor, after the 2011 death of Washington Gov. Albert Rosellini, 101, he is not the oldest-appearing governor.

That title remains with the Jurassic babe that is Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.

What are they doing, scanning all the cars with a Geiger counter?

I had no idea.

Please note: These were federal agents, not employees of the state of Arizona.

He's lucky it wasn't locals. If it'd been Sheriff Joe's boys he'd have spent the Fourth wearing pink underwear in a tent camp.

This was the third time such an incident has happened to Castro, who was elected in 1974 as the first (and only) Mexican American governor of Arizona.

[...]

Nearly half century ago, working on the front fence of his Tucson horse farm in his work clothes, Castro was stopped by a passing Border Patrol car. The agents asked if he had his work card. Castro said no. When they asked whom he worked for, Castro referred to “the señorita inside.” The agents nearly arrested Castro until he showed them the sign by his farm entrance: “Judge Castro.” A former Pima County prosecutor, Castro had become the first Latino Superior Court justice in the state in the 1960s.

[...]

A decade later, the Border Patrol struck again.

“I once had a home in San Diego,” Castro said. “One day my daughter and I returned and were stopped by Border Patrol. ‘Hey, where were you born? I wasn’t about to lie. I was born in Mexico, I said. The guard starts questioning me. ‘What about that young lady?’ She was born in Japan, I said, during the Korean War. He thought we were being smart. He didn’t want to let us go. In the meantime, someone came by and recognized me. Governor, how are you?”

[...]

The agents asked if he had his work card. Castro said no. When they asked whom he worked for, Castro referred to “the señorita inside.”

Lee Trevino was once out in his yard (in a mostly Anglo neighborhood), washing windows, when a woman drove up and asked him how much he charged for yard work. Trevino said "Well, the lady in this house lets me sleep with her."

The woman drove away.

Shows you why this sort of law is crap. Castro responded to this a lot better than I would have.
