A couple of things to consider on the matter. Officially, via federal law (if such things matter anymore) Immigration Officers have No jurisdiction
over an American Citizen - none, none, nada. This means, they have no authority to ask for anything from an American Citizen, regardless of what
issues they think are in play. They have jurisdiction over folks who are not here legally. So the red herring of "drugs" or "prostitutes" etc. is
out of order, as there are dozens of other agencies who DO have jurisdiction over American Citizens. They are not cops, if they are used a such, this
is another matter.
Another key point, alerting this fact to those thugs will accomplish NOTHING. They don't care, they were hired because the are immoral, ignorant and
this is the only job they could get that doesn't carry a walmart stigma, so pointing out the law to them is like pointing out the leash laws to a
stray dog. They drink cheap beer, they live and work in packs, they wear uniforms they hope will give them super powers, like they see on teeee veeee,
over the hundreds of millions of bad guys they are charged with taking down.
Final point. There are those who feel, even truly believe, that standing up to this kind of totalitarian insanity is the only way to change things.
This does not change a thing, in the history of institutionalized control, there has never been a controlling force that has willingly given up power
it has achieved - never. So there is no way, none, that the government folks are suddenly going to say, "gee, you're all right, we are abusing you
and misusing our power, we'll change." No matter the error, the illegal, the immoral the action, it will never happen.
It was pointed out by most of the planet that the NSA actions were clearly immoral and clearly wrong on every level except by the one goofy law they
used as a dried up fig leaf to cover their actions. What happened?: The person half the country put in office to speak to such matters said, in
essence, "so what?" Has any congressman put forth a law to abolish the practice? Has any law passed? Has anything at all happened to rescind the
Pick and choose your fights. Fighting Constitutional Law with dumbass high school dropouts wearing badges and carrying guns is only going to get your
car window knocked out or worse.
