techdirt: CBP Will Search You And Your Property If You’re Paying Too Much Attention To An Agent. Or Too Little. by Tim Cushing:
There’s a lot of talk about border security recently. Rather strangely, it involves CBP officers going without paychecks for an indefinite amount of time as government funding is held hostage in exchange for border wall/fence money.
Not that the CBP needs to remain near the wall/fence. It’s able to hassle people within 100 miles of the border, which also includes international airports and has the capability to sweep up most of America’s population. And that’s just CBP officers. The CBP’s drones are being lent out to anyone who wants to use one as far inland as they want to use it.
