Reader Nate K responds to Ex-Green Beret and War Correspondent Michael Yon Arrested at SeaTac for Not Reporting His Salary.
Nate thinks Customs and Border Patrol agents have too much unchecked power.
"As a US citizen, the border patrol HAS to let you enter the country, even if you refuse to answer questions.
Fortunately for the Border Patrol's ego, if you refuse to answer their questions, they can flag you in their database so that you will get harassed and stripped searched EVERY time you enter the country. And there's no appeal process, no recourse, no accountability. Nice system, huh?
'Land of the Free'? That's just so much false advertising these days."
