The signs, entitled, "YOUR RIGHTS with border patrol agents on this bus," makes three points:
• If you're a U.S. citizen, you don't have to prove it.
• If you're not a U.S. citizen and are 18 or older, you must show your immigration papers to federal agents.
• Everyone has the right to remain silent.
Why this sudden flurry of ACLU activity? Because the Border Patrol beefed up its presence in the region, and in October it began conducting random roadside stops at checkpoints located at and within the international border to combat, what it says, is a real threat to national security. How dare they.
The 2010 Winter Olympics will be held in Vancouver, not far from the border.
"Heightened border security is not only appropriate, it is necessary," Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA), ranking member of the Homeland Security Committee, told FOXNews.com.
"We've got the Olympics coming up. Do you know what terrorists want? Terrorists want to make the biggest splash they can to impair different countries with a different world view than they have, and making that splash at the Olympics is got to be close to the top of their list, if not the top."
Does the ACLU care, not one iota. Their aim is to create havoc for our law enforcement, divisiveness in our citizenry and anarchy in our country.
