DHS Extinguishes 197 Million People’s 4th Amendment Rights In Constitution Free Zones

Constitution Free Zones are what The Department of Homeland Security has established. The federal agency isn't really securing the borders, but they are extinguishing the Fourth Amendment rights of nearly 197 million American citizens within 100 miles of the border….and the ocean.

Before I begin, isn't this really what "Freedom of the Press" is supposed to be about? Doesn't it exist to keep elected officials and things they do in check and expose corruption and lawlessness? Yeah, I thought so too, but we aren't hearing this on the evening news, are we?

Anthony Gucciardi reports on these "Constitution Free Zones" where law breaking DHS is violating your constitutionally protected rights.

According to Gucciardi, "Within this fabricated 'border', the DHS can search your electronic belongings for no reason. We're talking about no suspicion, no reasonable cause, nothing. No reason whatsoever is required under their own regulations."

Is DHS above the law of the land? Absolutely not. However, the question I have for Congress is "Why are you guys not reining in this agency and calling out their unconstitutional actions?"

Strangely enough, the border for these Constitution Free Zones includes not only Mexico and Canada, but also states like Oregon, New York, North and South Carolina and various other coastal states, even Alaska! Below is a graphic showing the area in which DHS will take your computer or other electronic devices, search your belongings and shake you down without a warrant and without cause and claim they are within the law.

DHS' established Constitution Free Zones in the United States

This has been going on since 2008, which means that under Barack Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, the DHS began to abuse its power more than it had in previous years and under the current administration it has only become normalized.

While the Obama Justice Department wastes its time wondering if they will engage George Zimmerman in double jeopardy and violate the US Constitution's Fifth Amendment, they aren't worried about the clear violations of the Fourth by Homeland Security.

So far, only the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have challenged this. Now, I'm no friend of the ACLU, but on this they are right. They took a case involving a man who was actually detained within the 100 mile border area without cause.

Gucciardi writes, "Not only was this man's laptop searched for no reason, as is 'allowed' under DHS code now, but they ended up finding pictures designated to be linked up with 'terrorist' groups. In response, the man was thrown in a cell while DHS agents went through every piece of data on his entire laptop. The ACLU is now suing over this event, but there's no telling how the case will go with such limited media exposure. The DHS is literally gutting the Constitution and declaring itself higher than the law of the land by doing this, and it spells out major trouble for the entire Bill of Rights at large.

In 2008 Homeland Security promised to demonstrate within 120 days that what it was engaged in was constitutional. In August 2009, a year later, a report was released by, not surprisingly, the Department of Homeland Security, in which they had basically investigated themselves (that always results in the right thing) and determined that it was acting constitutionally.

Their explanation was that they weren't actually removing the Constitution from US soil, only the border, which has now apparently moved thousands of mile well past our borders. Well they must have developed the TSA and the VIPR teams to take care of those other areas.

  3. You can protest all you like, but if the media refuses to report and write about it, it never happened. It's much more effective to use passive resistance. Stop supporting
    the media, stars, producers, networks, singers, and companies like GE, etc. Stop
    feeding those who are working against us. Find and boycott companies owned by supporters of Obamacare and the New World Order like ARRP, Google, and Facebook. We have economic power and we have to use it to get our message heard.

    • I'd like to see some logical reason to link Google and Facebook with AARP. It's obvious that AARP is sold out to liberalism. I use Google, preferring it's search capabilities and liking everything about Google Chrome. So far as I can tell I've not yet been treated to any liberal foolishness endorsed by Google. But the liberal leaning of AARP is and has long been obvious.

    The time has come to remove Obama from the White House by any means necessary. Our 535 Representatives have failed to do it. Our own Military is taking no action to remove him. We can not wait till the next election because of we do there won't be a America left. Now is the time to do what needs to be done. If the Muslims can have a million man march on Washington DC we can have a 5 million man march demanding his removal immediately. If Egypt has the guts to protest against there leader in office and we refuse to make a move to do so, how does that make us look ? There is NO DOUBT if Obama remains in office this country will be destroyed. WE have sent faxes, made telephone calls, had impeachment rallies on overpasses and where has it gotten us ? Absolutely nowhere. Putin warn us of the dangers of President Obama. We know he is a danger to the republic and to democracy. Our rights are being violated daily. Are we SHEEPLE ? Where is the American spirit ? Where are the true Patriots who will stand up for freedom ? We cannot allow Obama care to go full stream. WE have to stop Amnesty. We have to close our borders and we have to stop the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in America. WE can't continue to allow Obama to send our tax money to our enemies who are his friends. WE the PEOPLE must end this and now not later. Patriot Militias in hiding it's time for action. Five years of this Tyrant is five years too long. He has refused to listen to the people. He keeps cutting back on our Military and brings in the Military from other countries. Are we going to continue to allow this ?

    • I see no need for us going to the expense of a 5 million person march on Washington, D.C. I feel it's our representatives who should act for us. I suggest that we should make clear to our representatives that we want Obama ousted as the first order of business when they return to Washington, D.C. after their vacation from twiddling their thumbs in recent months.
