If you're traveling across the border, your Constitutional freedoms are drastically curtailed. Witness yesterday's three rulings from the Ninth Circuit: U.S. v. Flores-Montano, U.S. v. Chaudhry and U.S. v. Hernandez.
Border inspectors don't have to have any reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing to inspect your gas tank, drill a small hole in the bed of your pickup truck or remove car door panels. It's almost as if they can pretty much take your vehicle apart and put it back together, even if it ends up with a hole in it or not all the parts reattached. In each instance, however, the Border agents found marijuana, not bomb-making materials.
If 9-11 hadn't occurred, would these cases be decided differently?
