Why?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending this at all. But some jackass looking at your emails isn't worth using a flip phone. Depending on your you look, there's like a 10% chance of it happening. If they look, you're inconvenienced, but nothing is taken from you permanently and nothing is recorded anywhere. It's just some jackass looking at your emails. There's a tiny, tiny chance it gets copied somewhere.

I'm not of the "I have nothing to hide, therefore I'll let them do what they want" mindset. I think they need to stop this. However, carrying a flip phone won't stop this from happening, only stop it from happening to me, at the expense of having to use a flip phone when I travel abroad. That massive inconvenience isn't worth the minimal risk to myself of this happening. I'd have to buy a flip phone, and I'd lose access to the internet and WhatsApp, two of the most useful tools for traveling outside the US.

The ACLU is hiring you know.

You should also donate to the ACLU.

They're in the process of hiring 100 more attorneys to handle all the BS the new administration is throwing out there.

I feel like it hasn't occurred to them that just because it's not unconstitutional doesn't mean they have to do it. Like, it could be legal for them to do this but they not do it anyway because it's a stupid idea.

Oh, make no mistake, it IS unconstitutional, but the fucking SCOTUS decided that apparently the constitution doesn't apply within 15 miles of the border. It's the most laughably ridiculous overreach of governmental "We're fucking with you just because we can" ever witnessed.

But if you're trying to catch a connecting flight, being delayed for two hours while some border patrol asswipe tries to find whatever it is that gets his tiny pecker hard is really, REALLY fucking annoying.

How does them checking your stuff actually work? What if your phone's email client doesn't have any accounts defined? What if you don't have the Facebook app installed?

Beamer, what does "Depending on your you look", is that "on where you look (for your statistics)" or "on how you look (racial profiling)"?

I feel like it hasn't occurred to them that just because it's not unconstitutional doesn't mean they have to do it. Like, it could be legal for them to do this but they not do it anyway because it's a stupid idea.

I can imagine them asking to see your phone, then you flip it open and start to hand it over... They'll either shake their head and wave you through, or inform you you've just been "randomly selected" for a more thorough screening.

My dad is coming to visit me in a few weeks. I may tell him to leave his phone at home so he doesn't get stuck for several hours because some border patrol dildo feels the need to abuse his authority.
