“Constitution-Free Zones!”

A federal judge who endorsed “suspicion-less” searches of laptops, cameras and cell phones at the border has set up a possible Supreme Court showdown challenging what critics call “Constitution-free zones” and the Obama administration’s dragnet approach to national security.

I don’t normally side with the ACLU. but…

“I think Americans are justifiably becoming increasingly surprised and even outraged by the extent to which the national security state seems to be monitoring and collecting information about us all,” said ACLU Attorney Catherine Crump. “We think that having a purely suspicion-less policy is wrong, because it leaves border agents with no standards at all to follow. That opens the door that people will be [targeted] for inappropriate reasons.”

Constitution-Free Zones?  Seriously?  Of course, we already have these elsewhere (airports, train stations, sobriety checkpoints, stop-and-frisk cities (Oh, wait!  They stopped doing THAT!)  :-)  Score one for our side!

  5. ” I don’t normally side with the ACLU. but…” Has it come down to this? When those of us leaning to the political right find ourselves agreeing with the ACLU we know it’s getting REALLY bad.
