What border agents can search on your phone (and more) video from CBC




Is this video accurate?
What has been your experience with USCBP agents regarding this issue?


I crossed the border a couple of times last year, never got my phone searched.

I didn't watch the video, but you can be guaranteed that they have the right to search any and all of your possessions, as well as any part of your body.
Always answer their questions with a "yes sir", "no sir", and nothing else. You do that and you may not have to bend over for them.
No political content in signatures (Who did I offend?)

That might work with "are you bringing anything in" but hardly with "where are you going?", "how long are you staying?", "where are you from?", "what is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?"
