What Happens When You Cross The Border, Janet Napolitano?

The treatment Laura Poitras receives when she enters, should be bestowed upon you…just in case you might be making illegal arms deals and smuggling chorizo in from Nogales. We know you love to order bullets and spend, spend, spend on all sorts of things that have nothing to do with terrorism.

Relinquish your pens while you’re at it, too.

“… she was told by one DHS agent — after she asserted her privileges as a journalist to refuse to answer questions about the individuals with whom she met on her trip — that he “finds it very suspicious that you’re not willing to help your country by answering our questions.” They sometimes keep her detained for three to four hours (all while telling her that she will be released more quickly if she answers all their questions and consents to full searches).”

I’ll bet Madam Janet would like this song about Mother Russia and her citizens being punished with a bullet for writing down their thoughts. Maybe in a few years Madam Janet’s DHS will reach its full extrajudicial & Constitution Ignoring power and she’ll be able to use her Border Bullets immediately upon laptop inspection. I think she’d like that.
