DHS expands its occupation of America

A video shows the Department of Homeland Security conducting warrantless searches of vehicles at a ferry crossing in Galveston, Texas, in yet another example of how the agency is setting up checkpoints across the country.

The clip shows drivers being forced to exit their vehicle to allow the DHS officials to inspect both their trunk and hood before being permitted to pass the checkpoint.

“I’ve never seen this kind of deal,” remarks the driver in the clip, who takes the ferry regularly, “We were just randomly pulled over here.”

“What’s going on here man, this is America! I don’t want them searching my truck,” he adds as the driver in front is made to exit his car.

When asked what they were doing, the DHS official responds, “It’s a screening process, Homeland Security,” before asking the man to pop the hood.

The footage was shot at the ferry crossing between Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula, emphasizing how the federal agency is now setting up checkpoints between internal waterways that have no relation to immigration.

As you can see from the map below, the ferry crossing is just 2.7 miles in length and takes only 18 minutes to complete the journey.

There is no other option for motorists than using the ferry because it is the only way to cross the waterway between the two locations.

The Department of Homeland Security continues to expand the number of checkpoints it operates throughout the country, primarily via the VIPR program, under which TSA agents have been deployed to shake down Americans at everywhere from bus depots, to highways, to ferry terminals, to train stations, in one instance conducting pat downs of passengers, including children, who had already completed their journeywhen arriving in Savannah.

In an end run around the 4th Amendment, which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, the DHS has declared that everywhere within a 100 mile radius of any border, including waterways, is a “Constitution free zone.”
