I thought this was a joke:

Travelers’ Laptops May Be Detained At Border

Federal agents may take a traveler’s laptop or other electronic device to an off-site location for an unspecified period of time without any suspicion of wrongdoing, as part of border search policies the Department of Homeland Security recently disclosed.

“They’re saying they can rifle through all the information in a traveler’s laptop without having a smidgen of evidence that the traveler is breaking the law,” said Greg Nojeim, senior counsel at the Center for Democracy and Technology. Notably, he said, the policies “don’t establish any criteria for whose computer can be searched.”

But, it’s not.

I guess that, if you live in the U.S., you should never leave and, if you live outside the U.S., you should stay out.

Nice.

News like this makes me long for the perfect government that God has set up under the just rulership of His son. (Daniel 2:44)
