Your Papers, Please. And Your Phone While We’re At It

I think what bothers me the most is the thug Gestapo tactics used on the film maker, a US citizen.  This is clearly a physical assault, not compliance tactics.  Why are our border agents committing the crime of assault against peaceful citizens?

FTA:  “Within seconds, he was surrounded: one man held his legs, another squeezed his throat from behind. A third reached into his pocket, pulling out his phone. McCormick watched her boyfriend’s face turn red as the officer’s chokehold tightened.”

    “They have the legal authority to go through any object crossing the border within 100 miles, including smartphones and laptops. ” Now that is unreasonable and shows how far out there agencies have gotten. Apparently if your a US citizen and venture within 50 miles either side or within 100 miles of the border they can seize and search?! It’s just getting crazy. It was starting way back in 1997 when I left law-enforcement.
