The Constitution Is Suspended 100 Miles Into The US

US Immigration and Customs officials can detain and forcibly search even US citizens up to 100 miles from the border. Forced cavity searches are allowed and even a Latin US Congressperson is "regularly detained.".

Lately absolutely gross violations have taken place in Texas and New Mexico as far as body-cavity searches go.
It's disgusting. It's behavior which does not befit a civilized nation, behavior our country has used at least in part to justify military action in other countries.
