Is this at the border of each US state?

Watched this Youtube video and wondering where and how this is happening.

Anyone wanna bet that he’s gonna get busted for some other charge and very likely shot while ‘resisting arrest’ – by accident, of course – sometime in the next year?

Something tells me this is an excellent possibility of where the shit may well start. :em03:

yay random DHS checkpoints!

PAPIEREN, BITTE!

What part of “Am I being detained” do these green-shirted jackboots not understand?

Don’t know much at all about the border Stasi, Brendan.
Here in Chicago, the Count of Cook, Ill, the local gendarmes wouldn’t put up with that lippy behavior for long.
Just cause or just ’cause, you’ll be on Dash-cam TV with your pockets pulled inside out and your balance checked either standing or prone.

It looks like some of these are the ‘border inspection’ stations that are scattered randomly all over the southwest… I know there is one on the 10 freeway in CA- about 150 miles from the border. Of course, that one is billed as a “Agricultural Inspection Station” and they want to know what plants you have….

does any one not believe that these nazi would not kick in your door in the middle of the night and murder you?

I believe one of the checkpoints is between Californication and Arizona. Neither state wants any agricultural pests imported from the other, such as Mediterranean Fruit Flies. So, that one I can understand. If that travelor wants to proceed unhindered, then they need to leave their possibly infected fruit and/or vegetables at the state line. Those checkpoints have been in place for at least 45 years. The rest of them are as much bullshit as TSA groping babies and grannies at the airport.

Can anyone please shed more light on this?

For commission to memory:

“On advice of council, I do not consent to searches of my person or property.”
“Am I being detained? Let me know when I am free to leave.”
“On advice of council, I have nothing further to say to you.”

(It was suggested to me by an attorney to include the phrase “on advice of council…” This heads off the expected “Why won’t you answer my questions/let me take a look inside your vehicle?” reply from an officer.)

Stand your ground, and hope the don’t have a “warrant on a leash” with them.

Those “Agriculture Inspection Stations” between Kalifonia and Arizona were originally set up to keep the Okies out in the 30’s. I have been going through them for over 30 years and 99% of the time, it’s just a wave through. The others I roll down my window and listen to their spiel on fruits and vegetables and answer “No sir/ma’am” and I’m on my way. (I use sir/ma’am in a lot of interactions. Everyone from LEO’s, bosses, to the clerks at my gas station, depends on how well I know the person) That said, these random checkpoints set up 50… Read more »

Try the one between Las Cruces and Alamogordo on US 70.

We’ve been driving through California “bug stations” since I was a child. Having local plates, I’ve never been stopped. Most of the time they wave us through. An item for consideration: There is a time to confront and assert your rights and a time to become “the gray man.” Meter readers, appliance repairmen, religious solicitors, cab drivers and the like surround us daily, yet are given scant notice, if at all. Far better to be the invisible local delivery driver than the civil liberties firebrand when transporting your cargo of cigarettes and 32 ounce cups through the “traffic safety checkpoint”… Read more »

Why do you wnat to look in my vehicle?, Why do you want to know? What is the Problem Officer. Do you have probable cause?
Or maybe the proactive approach – Why am I being detained? He tells you are nootbeing detained. And you are authorized to continue on.

They have these on the California highways just north of San Diego. I have been waved through the few times I drove back and forth from LA to San Diego. I don’t live there, just have to go there once every 5 years or so.

This is around the area where they have posted the big yellow, diamond shaped signs to warning of illegals crossing the road. Every illegal heading north knows where these checkpoints are located. The Mexican government marks them on the “immigration” maps that is passed out just south of the border.

Lack of provenance is, of course, suspicious. Have to wonder why this/these driver(s) want(s) to be such a hero, particularly since (at the risk of sounding like the Imperial Contradictor) driving anonymously isn’t so easy & this type of “resistance” will make you stand out pretty fast. Besides, we’ve definitely received the impression that the Border Patrol is more victim than perp.

There’s a BP station between where I live and Tucson here in AZ. I’ve never had to answer more than “Is there anyone else in the vehicle with you?”. Normally they take a look at me and wave me on. I travel through this station about every 2 months or so, on my way up to I-10 and Tucson. (I guess being blonde with blue eyes and Arizona plates helps)

Meanwhile in Texas, a nice big hearty FUCK YOU. On March 7, 2013, State Representative James White filed House Concurrent Resolution 77. The text of the bill is as follows: WHEREAS, The Republic of Texas existed as an independent nation for nine years, and when it accepted admission to the Union in 1845, it remained a free and independent state subject only to the United States Constitution; and WHEREAS, The United States Congress has passed laws requiring Texas to make expenditures that are unfunded by the federal government, which is a violation of the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution;… Read more »

About 90 miles north of the border in Texas. It’s a US Border Patrol checkpoint intended to help reduce the flow of illegal aliens into the country. I’ve sailed through them without issues countless times. The question “are you a US citizen” is the same question you’re asked upon entering the country at the border, and if you answer “yes” and don’t hassle the guy doing his job, you’re usually on your way in under a minute. The driver of the vehicle is no doubt a Liberal who thinks that having countless “undocumented immigrants” in the country is a good… Read more »

LC Sir M – Imperial Tobacconist™, K.o.E. says: The driver of the vehicle is no doubt a Liberal who thinks that having countless “undocumented immigrants” in the country is a good thing, and who whines about any type of border security. Most likely, however I must say I now carry a small video recorder with me in the car for when a “Yes Sir/No Sir” answer and a pleasant attitude isn’t enough. I’ve only had to pull it out once with the statement “I think I will record the rest of this encounter sir”….. and it worked like a dream.… Read more »

I see an angry libertarian more than a moonbat. Moonbats tend to be boot-licking cowards when you catch them out of a herd Sir M. A libertarian will get in the face of the unjust, consequences be damned. Speaking personally, I don’t give fucking papers to nobody that ain’t legally entitled to them inside the borders of my own country. And I don’t answer questions to Obama-bots with faux badges. And fuck any Nazi bastard that asks me – OATH BREAKER I say to them. Yes, it helps that I have far more than your average layperson’s understanding of the… Read more »

Yeah, I smell a libertarian more than a lefty there, but I’ve also known libertarians who are SO liberation they are borderline anarchist. However I’m kind of surprised by the reactions here. Those are border patrol agents, not jackbooted political thugs. They’re on OUR side. There is a difference between someone catching wrongdoing via hidden camera and someone who is clearly and needlessly trying to provoke shit. He probably hoped to get beaten and arrested to create a firestorm video like the Rodney King one. If that is the case, why target the border patrol? As conservatives, we champion the… Read more »

The government has no business conducting these checks 20 – 30 miles north of the border. I don’t know the motivation of the guy filming this, but what he is doing is needed. I don’t buy that we as conservatives have to do anything to help these illegal searches. Just as they are trying to condition us to accept this, we need to condition them to the fact that not all of us are willing to live in a police state. The different reactions were very educational. The pros let him go. You could tell some of them would have… Read more »

Yes, I do mean this particular Congress.

We are just trying to enact some “sensible” firearm regulations that will neuter them and see to it they virtually impossible to obtain unless you are a member of our preferred nomenclatura.

No, I meant that this Congress can’t and won’t agree on anything. Oh really? House GOP Leaders: We Can Pass Gun Control, Immigration, Without Republican Support With more and more conservatives in the House rebelling against John Boehner’s increasingly questionable Speakership, Republican House leadership is now moving to quash in-house concerns by reaching across the aisle for support. Leadership is moving in the wake of a surprising move by 16 House Republicans to vote against a Republican leadership-crafted closed rule on a government funding bill. The rule was designed to limit amendments to the government funding bill, but some House… Read more »

Dem Rep. Jan Schakowsky: I’m not so sure we can’t ban handguns entirely “In which Jason Mattera discovers Schakowsky’s Nixonian side. Watching this reminded me of the videos that circulated during the ObamaCare debate of high-profile liberals confessing publicly that single-payer is the ultimate goal of universal health care. In both cases, they’re pushing regulations that are less ambitious than they’d prefer because they’ve concluded that only an incrementalist approach can get them to their final destination.

I’m not one to go out of my way to be a dickhole, but simply put, if these green shirted clowns had jurisdiction at all they would have drug these people out of their vehicles and had then zip stripped in a line faster they could ask, “am I being detained?” The simple fact that they waffle, stutter, fold up and eventually let the guy through tells you everything you need to know about what they are being told to do.
