A truck driver who passed through an unconstitutional checkpoint 30 miles from the Mexican border stood up for his 4th Amendment rights by refusing to answer questions in another example of how Americans are re-asserting their liberties.
A You Tube video shows the truck driver approaching a checkpoint manned by U.S. Border Patrol agents. The checkpoint is situated in Texas at least 30 miles from the border with Mexico.
After a Border Patrol agent asks the man if he is has any passengers and is a U.S. citizen, the truck driver refuses to answer any questions, only asking, “Am I free to go?”
The truck driver asks if he crossed the border, who which the Border Patrol agent responds, “No, sir.”
The agent repeats his questions and subsequently calls over his superior who starts to become visibly annoyed with the truck driver after he refuses to answer any more questions and pleads the 5th amendment.
“Do you have anything to hide, are you breaking the law right now?,” asks the Border Patrol agent, adding, “Are you hiding anything in there – tell me.”
