Homeland Security Decides What's Foreign is Theirs
The government's stance is simple: They reserve the right to snatch your computer for an indefinite period of time if you bring it across the border and they decide you look sneaky.
Okay it's not quite that bad. It's much worse. They believe they can grab anything digital -- cameras with memory chips, cell phones, flash drives. Anything that would be of use to someone living in the 21st century.
What makes it even better: They don't feel particularly bothered to explain to you why it's happening.
Nothing to see here folks. Move along.
At least some in Congress are concerned, which is good; however, they've gone home for the next five weeks, so don't expect any help until they get back.
