    Ouch, so if you had 10 kilos of drugs and a certain look you stand a good chance of avoiding even a sniff test from a dog?

    The new budget has over 25 billion dollars allotted for border security — I'm wondering if any of it would make a difference in what we just saw.

    Stupid lazy fucktards should be fired. Why are they 100 miles from the border? The Chinese got it right 3000 years ago. If you want to keep out the mongrels, you build a wall. Not a puny fence but a big damn brick wall.

    PORKBARREL useless, and a pain in the ass for locals driving less than new vehicles i've not been there in a couple years , but in 5 yrs. i was waved through ONCE , questioned often , tho' never searched if i were a drug mule , i'd pay the bribe or fly someone should do a cost analysis , how much for any legit stops with results it's as effective as our constant wars , that is , not at all

    Been through that one many times. Usually they see we are white and just pass us through.
    One time my husband said something cheeky to the drug dog like "hello buddy" the dog showed a hit on our car so they made us all get out while they looked w flashlights & asked if we had drugs or weapons.
    Hell yes we did! Weed. And we said as much.
    They said "ok, thats fine. Thanks for being honest" and we went along our merry way!

    How long did you have to wait until they let you go? It's Insane that they are even called border patrol. If the border is 100 south of there then there is no way they are protecting the border. This is only stopping American drivers who are just trying to good to work or the store. It should be considered an illegal search without probable cause.

    Then cameras are a little more than facial recognition. They also x-rays or something like a ultrasound on your car. They have references to the same make and models they can pull up to see what X-ray look like on a regular model of the same kind and if it's different, you will get pulled and search.

    When I go through there I haven't had problems but in Columbus they let the dog scratch my car up really bad and when I told him they pat the car so he would jump up and walk along that way so there's lots of damage
