    The clip shows drivers being forced to exit their vehicle to allow the DHS officials to inspect both their trunk and hood before being permitted to pass the checkpoint.

    “I’ve never seen this kind of deal,†remarks the driver in the clip, who takes the ferry regularly, “We were just randomly pulled over here.â€When asked what they were doing, the DHS official responds, “It’s a screening process, Homeland Security,†before asking the man to pop the hood.

    The footage was shot at the ferry crossing between Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula, emphasizing how the federal agency is now setting up checkpoints between internal waterways that have no relation to immigration.

    I dealt with far worse trying to get into Canada in 1990, 91, 92 and 93. Individuals weren't pulled aside and asked if anyone they were travelling with had any aliases. The inside of the car and the trunk weren't searched.

    Bullshit. 4th Amendment violation. Problem is if you refuse, they'll fuck you up! Yet we sit here and let them do it day after day....

    we've really given up our privacy. who ever thought that prior to getting on a plane we'd have to stand in line like cattle then taking off our shoes, belts, wallets and emptying our pockets. as if that isn't bad enough we then have to pass through a machine that images our naked bodies to make sure we don't have contraband/explosives in our bodies.
    these are kept on file for the gov't to laugh at whenever it wants to.

    the last time i flew i refused to go through the machine and demanded that a TSA agent pat me down. i refuse to be a sheep and at least patdowns make them work and get off their fat asses.

    it's really pathetic and surpasses everything the KGB ever did.

    Getting into Canada can be a huge pain. I know some comics who can't work over the border because of past priors.

    Small price to pay, I guess, when the country's number one criminal is a dude shaping dicks out of hedges.

    Thing was a fucking nightmare when it was signed and no better today. If Obama and his ilk really hated GWB and what he stood for so much they would have ripped that thing out by the roots.

    A few weeks ago, there was one posted on here where they were taking your DNA at a checkpoint in Texas.

    Holy shit, I just moved back to the mainland a couple of months ago, was living on Ferry Rd in Galveston....I took a video one time while driving down Harbor Side (it's right there on the ship channel) and there were about 2 or 3 acres of MRAPs that had been unloaded from the big ass container ships.

    ...oh canada if fucked up to try to get into on the west coast, you need a passport or they search your car and shake you down right before they refuse to let you in. them coming back into the usa, same deal, no passport, out of the car into the office to prove who i was, 2 of my kids and a grandson. it use to be seattle to vancouver no problem but now its a huge deal.

    ...yeah they could be out there baqsed on a credible threat but the police from mayberry to d.c. have too much power.
