Basically, all travelers, U.S. citizens and others, need to be aware of certain issues when entering the U.S. with electronic equipment. WHY? Because a lawsuit has been filed last week over warrantless searches of laptops and other electronic devices at U.S. borders, meaning that the officer at the borders could take your laptop without any evidence needed.
Here are some of the highlights:
- No evidence needed to take your laptop
- Anything can be searched
- Your PC might not be returned right away
- Don't take anything you don't want to share
- Be cooperative
