    More true today than ever before.
    There is also that old cliche about the camel getting its nose under the tent.

    I wasn't asked any questions at all either time. They are supposed to ask every driver and passenger is they are a citizen of the US, that's the express reason for the checkpoint, not drug searches with dogs on scene. Neither a bad experience or untimely delay, but it was something I didn't expect that far from the border.
    It would seem this paragraph in he article describes your encounters. I wonder if yours were Mexican sniffing dogs.

    CBP's own rules seem to incorporate Edmond in that internal checkpoints are supposed to be used for "determining citizenship of those who pass through" and "not for the general search for those persons or vehicle." But the preponderance of canines at internal checkpoint stops would seem to contradict these guidelines, since dogs have no demonstrated ability to sniff out the difference between an American and a Mexican.

    Could be, maybe that's why the dog didn't sit down at my vehicle

    I guess that's one benefit I have living away from the coast. Except when I'm on my way to visiting FL, (and of course while in FL) I stay out of that zone. Pretty good gun laws too, and our legislators are working to improve them every year.

    OK, let's get real. The issue of inspection has been settled when coming into the country. There is NO WAY that the SCOTUS is going to uphold a stop and frisk policy within a 100 mile border - without reasonable suspicion or probable cause. The dope judges decision just has to be appealed up the red line.

    Being the subject of an illegal search by a dog was not a bad experience?

    You mean, the same SCOTUS that said it's OK to condemn private property - to give to other private entities for development? (Kelo v. City of New London, 545 U.S. 469 (2005))

    The same SCOTUS that said it's OK for the Federal Government to REQUIRE citizens to purchase a commercial product? (yes - that's Obamacare)

    NAAAAAWWWW - - they would NEVER do that
