How are you doing today, sir? Where are you coming from? Do you speak English? Spanish? Any? Alright, you're not going to answer my questions? Alright. This is an Immigration Checkpoint. You are being detained until you answer our questions. Is that clear? Okay, you've got cameras on. You have to use the bathroom? You can use the bathroom.
