Homeland security

Statement of senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), regarding the Dept. of Homeland Security placing symbolic checkpoints miles away from the U.S.-Canada border,

It’s interesting – I went through one of those symbolic checkpoints in the state of New York driving back here. It was about 125 miles from the border. In a car with license plate one on it from Vermont. With little letters underneath it that said US Senate. We were stopped and ordered to get out of the car and prove my citizenship. And I said “what authority are you acting under?” and one of your agents pointed to his gun and said “that’s all the authority I need.” Encouraging way to enter our country.
