Read it and weep. This is absolutely out of hand. I am looking for additional source material for this. I have linked a couple sources in the body of the story. In my opinion, creating a whole new bureaucracy, with unlimited and unchecked powers. We already had plenty of agencies, with overlapping mission and scope. All we needed to do was increase their funding for more personnel and technology. We would have also benefitted from the formation of an inner-agency task force, to coordinate the effort. That was what the administration was initially selling us. Instead, what what we got was a cross between the gestapo and the SS. It has grown out of hand, and should be gradually reduced in size and scope, maybe disbanded altogether. I have found some story links, about the airport, and border seizures. It provides many more sources as well. Laptop seizures at customs raise outcry. Senators Oppose Laptop Border Searches. Critics assail laptop searches at the U.S. border. Senate reviews rules regarding laptop seizures from travelers. Laptop searches at U.S. airports draw fire at Senate hearing. Border agents seizing laptops, witnesses report. Laptop seizures at customs raise outcry.
