The border extends ‘100 miles’??? How in the hell do they justify that? Has this ever been upheld in court?

ACLU map of U.S. Constitution-free zone. Note that 2 out of 3 Americans live within the zone, and it includes 7 out of 10 of our largest cities.

Our Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and the DHS doesn’t have the authority to overrule that. I can’t imagine the circumstances under which such a thing could possibly hold up in court.

Hmm, looking at the map more closely (and assuming it’s fairly accurate), it includes several entire states on the East Coast and one in the midwest.

I’m guessing the citizens of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Delaware, Florida, and Michigan won’t be very happy to hear that they’re no longer considered protected by the Fourth Amendment.

This has been effect for 7+ years. When I travel for biz out of the country, I always make sure I don’t have embarrassing photos on my phone. Not sure how they deal with corporate secrets. They can confiscate your computer and keep it for weeks. This isn’t new (but remains no less infuriating).

Yeah, but most of them are liberals…most Real Americans live in the fly-over zones.

 Frank says:

I feel it's better to sing about these things ourselves and perform them with the people who it happened to than to have some journalist one day say 'then in 1971, one time when they were at the mudshark hotel...' But people have problems with things of a glandular nature in connection with things of a musical nature. They say why, music is way up here, and glands are way down there and they can't get 'em together, but then they are hypocritical because they take a band that doesn't sing about such things directly and couches their language a little and does it with a little choreography and say that that's great and that's real rock and roll. I maintain that there's no difference, we're just honest enough to get up and say 'this is this and that's that and here you are and respond to it' and the response is 'why... I'm hip, but of course I am offended'.
