DHS Checkpoint Blog Entry 12: The Sniff of Approval

On October 15, 2008 while driving Eastbound on SR86 in Southern Arizona, four armed Homeland Security agents stopped me at an internal suspicionless DHS checkpoint long enough for a drug sniffing K9 unit to sniff my vehicle absent suspicion or consent. No immigration questions were asked during this brief seizure despite the claim by the Border Patrol that these are immigration checkpoints & Supreme Court rulings requiring the purpose of such checkpoints to be limited in scope to brief immigration queries.

The location of this checkpoint was 40 miles North of the border along an East-West highway never intersecting the border. It's unknown how much illegal contraband and how many illegal border crossers entered the country to the South while the attention of four Border Patrol agents was on domestic traffic miles to the North...

  • Are you Butthurt because they want to catch criminals and Illegals?

    How moronic is it that you think the Border Patrol must face south at all times dude?

    Gee, you really showed how inconvenienced your were for all of 5 seconds of "Seizure"

  • Do you idiots that are hating on this guy even realize what your own rights as a citizen are?
    Most of you don't.

    Do any of you even realize how long it takes to drive 40 miles at 55miles an hour? Almost an hour... this check point is almost an hour from the border.
    Maybe you people start to wake the fuck up when they start placing these checkpoints at the end of your white wash suburban communities.

    Best of luck TRUE Americans.. you'll need it based off how little your fellow countrymen More..

  • Do to the recent internal checkpoint incident where a Baptist pastor got mashed by border patrol and dps, i did a significant amount of research on this topic.

    1. the checkpoint with 100 miles of the border is legal.
    2. the statue says that BP can question you "like anyone else" but cannot detain you and you can walk away.

    This is a copy of the statute:
    (b) Interrogation and detention not amounting to arrest . (1) Interrogation is questioning designed to elicit specific informa More..

    • @sftech 
      The funny thing about Steven Anderson is his Lawyer, Marc Victor is a Show Pony and participated in a Mock Trial with the rest of the group.

      I've been analyzing the videos Steve did and it's looking more like a staged show than not.

  • You idiots miss the point. It not even legal to force citizens through checkpoints like this.

  • wow, a checkpoint, waaaaah! they also bi-tch when they sit around doing nothing. I start worrying when LL and all media outlets go off the net ordered by the government, that's when I start grabbing my steel.

  • What the fuck is wrong with this ass, is he losing his mind.

    I have been running into the same checkpoint on the 5N coming up from Tijuana/Rosarita for as long as I can remember.

  • I don't particularly like checkpoints in our border either. Nevertheless, I would rather see them catching illegal aliens even if it means I have to stop for five seconds. Rarely do you see anyone complain about DUI checkpoints (ruled constitutional by the way)!

  • WTF is your complaint? If they were in the South on an obvious road of travel where illegals and such are less likely to go,you would be complaining about them not being to the North on less conspicuous roads. The title says Homeland Security. Well when I last checked all of our roads,highways and interstates were part of our homeland. Who are you to try and delegate where checkpoints should or shouldnt take place? Its not your job,its not your concern and its indeed not your business so go find More..

  • This dude seeks out checkpoints specifically so he can feel indignant when he gets stopped at the checkpoint. What an ass.

  • My friend you are a fucking full bred ass hole. Get a life. As a matter of fact why don't you pack your bags and buy a one way ticket out of this country. You fucking liberals make me sick. Actually I hope some of the heroin that makes it to the US gets into your kids arm. Better yet I hope that illegal alien that made it through that checkpoint slaughters your whole family for a plasma TV and gameboy. If we're lucky maybe Muhammad can sneak an explosive device through that checkpoint and blow i More..

  • What year did you start Astroturfing for Law Enforcement and how is the pay structured?

    Dennis Dohertry, https://www.facebook.com/dennis.doherty.547?fref=ts suggested I could work with Law Enforcement earning $200,000 per year making Astroturfing videos but recommended I keep quiet about the ACLU Lawyer, Mitra Ebadolahi, that you and the fake Whistleblowing Agent Michael Flanders directed me to.

    I'm too much of a loud mouth for that deal.

    I let Matt Testa from the Warrior Poet's Project More..
