In this video, two vehicles in communication with each other are pulled into a newly installed vehicle inspection lane at the Galveston Island ferry entrance.

This ferry does not operate internationally. It operates between Port Bolivar and Galveston Island, both in the state of Texas.

Video DHS Warrantless Search and Seizures – No 4th Amendment Within 100 Miles of Any US Coast or Border

DHS doesn’t need a reason to search a vehicle or your person or your personal effects. They have decreed that the fourth amendment protections no longer apply within one hundred miles of any United States border.

There doesn’t even need to be a foreign nation on the other side of that border. The enforcement of oceanfront borders can be conducted in the same manner, according to DHS policy.

One hundred and ninety-seven million people live within the one hundred mile band within the U.S., which means, for over half of our population, they are living without their fourth amendment protections from illegal search and seizure.

This has been the case since 2008, when George W. Bush announced the Department of Homeland Security policy. The DHS determined that it would give itself the authority to seize electronics and their contents of any type, from any individual, without cause and without a warrant as part of border security. They then applied the 100 mile definition to broadly interpret the meaning of the word “border.”

A subsequent review, which was to have been completed, by the DHS, of its own policy was finalized after four years. Unsurprisingly, they upheld the policy as legitimate. Aside from one ACLU challenge, there has been little activity on this issue and virtually no publicity.

This is just more of the endless encroachment of the police state into our lives and more of an assault upon our freedoms as American citizens. We will not see any of these checkpoints disappear. We will surely see more of them as the expansive network of control by the controlling central government creates the framework for the modern police state in America.

    Sorry people but by being ignorant of your own government’s policies you deserve what they give you. Maybe a little less football and beer guzzling would allow for some time to take care of your own freedoms.

    DHS and its benefactors do NOT have the LEGAL AUTHORITY to nullify ANY part of the Constitution!!

    Attempting to do so would make them an illegal occupying army described as a “domestic enemy” in the military oath to defend the Constitution!

    Can you say TREASON?

    Did anyone happen to notice that this 100 mile perimeter perfectly matches the estimated death zone if earth is subjected to a Planet X fly by?
