FTA, the Fourth Amendment Free Zone, where they can search anything they want, anytime they want, without a warrant, or even suspicion, extends 100 miles in from the border? So, when I was living in San Diego, my belongings and my person were not provided with Fourth Amendment protections?

What about if you live near the coast? Does anyone within 100 miles of any coastal waters fall under this?
Technically, the coast is a border.

You could always claim that the border is the 200 mile limit for territorial waters. Otherwise, Florida is in a LOT of trouble.

They are already working to get TSA agents at all sporting and entertainment events.

Hate to say it, but they’ve been doing this for a few years…. Whenever I came back from Japan, I wouldn’t have my laptop with me. Refused to give them the satisfaction.

Cool! Take and search my computer and phone, but let 12 million illegals in without a problem.
Sounds like a real secure border we have.
