What are your rights at the border? It depends on your immigration status, and even US citizens will not enjoy their usual Constitutional rights in this situation. This is an important topic that should not be overlooked. I have a insightful and revealing discussion with Adam Schwartz from the Electronic Frontier Foundation about the recent escalation in US border searches of electronic devices. We’ll discuss what’s happening and how you can prepare for potential searches at the border, and why this is important for every citizen whether you plan to leave the country or not.
