I can do no better describing this shocking reality than the original author. I will give you a taste of what has become the norm with the Obama administration exercising its will to trample Constitutional rights whenever they deem it necessary. No courts, no due process, not warning, just flagrant, arrogant violation.
Consider the prohibitions contained in the Fourth Amendment protecting citizens from unreasonable searches and seizure, declaring us secure in our persons, houses papers and effects. And then try to square that pre-eminent protection with this. (hint: You Can't)
[T]he DHS has apparently decided to void the Constitution if you live within 100 miles of the U.S. border. Your electronics may be seized and your data searched if you live or are travelling within 100 miles of the border.
This draconian policy, neglected by Congress, has been unilaterally declared just fine and dandy by the DHS itself in yet another example of the Executive unilaterally claiming unconstitutional powers over citizens with their only check being their own rubber stamp.
To get an idea of the scope of this “Constitution-free Zone”, consider this map:
Consider too that fully two-thirds (2/3) of the United States’ population lives within this Constitution-free Zone. That’s 197.4 million people, including everyone in Hawaii. And Florida, Rhode Island, Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Michigan. Aloha!
