'Hey, Homeland Security. Don't you dare demand Twitter, Facebook passwords at the border'


Here is what happened last week coming into US O'Hare from Banff Canada (I do this once a month).

They ask me to turn on my phone, I do. They ask to see (hold) it, I oblige. They ask for the PIN. I say no, and add, if I am going to jail for it, let's add assault.

They give my phone back. "On your way sir, your cleared.".

Don't try that. We'll see who I get next month!
