    Are you hiding something up there? (I'll take your word for it. No interest in confirming either way.)

    Exactly.

    And if they got 25 - which seems like a lot - and they all had traces of drugs on them - that sounds to me like a big dent in the drug trade right here in New England.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the illegal drug orgs smuggle people into the country - and have them do their dirty work. That's another BAD side effect of being so lenient on the illegals that the left never wants to acknowledge.

    It wouldn't surprise me in the least if the Feds could put a major dent in the drug distribution networks by simply deporting a shit load of illegals.

    It appears that the 46 legals were the drug dealers.
    14 of the illegals had just overstated their visas. I'm willing to bet 0 criminal record on those particular ones.
    Your assumption is unrealistic.

    There is a right way( or Rights way) and a wrong way to catch and deport illegals. Random dog sniffing interior checkpoints are the wrong way. Period. Either you are for a Constitution and BOR or you are not. You can't have this both ways.

    From the article:

    One last big roundup before the marijuana decriminalization takes effect in less than 3 weeks?

    Or maybe federal agents will continue to use drug-sniffing dogs for this purpose even after that (because they are "federal").

    ETA: It looks like they left the drug violations to the locals:

    Dealers or just users? Marijuana, mushrooms, hash oil, and "small amounts" of coke. Great work there. Nothing about opioids, the sort of drugs actually killing people at too high a rate in NH.

    Went camping this past weekend and saw this on the way home. They weren't checking anyone at that point.

    I made mention of this elsewhere on NES this morning.

    Reader's Digest version:
    To the feds and BP reefer is still illegal in Maine (story today in the Bangor Daily) even though you are allowed 2.5 oz and it can be Rx'ed. BP says it doesn't go looking for it but if you spark up a doobie in front of them or they find it you are going to jail.

    What I'd like to know is how was the dog being used? After the illegal was found or was every car at the check point sniffed by the K9?

    No way in HELL did they catch 46 drug shipments. They caught 46 individuals that like to smoke weed.

    The bulk shippers knew and changed course.

    How do you prove you are not illegal at one of these stops?

    I'm British by brith and US Citizen by choice, however I do not drive around with my passport and my accent being British obviously makes me an immigrant.

    My wife is Japanese green card holder, again she doesn't drive around with her green card.

    Not worried, just wondering, because anyone could say they are a US Citizen?

    I could show them my EDC as ONLY law abiding Citizen can have them... correct?

    Meanwhile, hundreds of illegals were likely caught and released elsewhere, mainly in more Urban areas.

    You could tell them to F off citing the 4th and 14th amendments. And English accent and "Driving While Asian" isn't probable cause.

    It was clearly every single car, since they found 25 + 46.

    Yep. Sadly if you read the SCOTUS rulings that allow for these bogus checkpoints, the court basically stated that minor infringements of a very large number of people's 4th Amendment rights was okay AND that the checkpoints need not even be effective.

    I'll cite.

    In Michigan State Police v. Sitz, which was about DUI checkpoints, the court referred to US v. Martinez-Fuerte, which was specifically about these internal immigration checkpoints. They said this:

    And to expand, the court did in fact agree every time someone was stopped at one of these checkpoints, it was indeed an "intrusion upon the constitutionally protected interests of the private citizen", in other words, a violation of your 4th Amendment right.

    From Martinez-Fuerte

    I like that last one. SCOTUS actually ruled that if you are less "frightened or annoyed", then the government can intrude on your rights. Some high standard there. I'm certain that isn't found in the Constitution.

    Brown is the current scapegoat Du Jour, good sir. So white and asian persons, likely to be waived through the checkpoint, as you're not on the "baddies" list (today anyways). You may or may not however, remember a time in contemporary American history where your wife being Japanese may not have been so lucky, and instead of being waived through, may have instead been interned into a camp.

    If you really want to send a message... Start shooting them and selling the carcass to pig farmers as feed.
