U.S. citizens and foreign travelers can have their laptops seized without warrant “or without suspicion of wrongdoing” for an unspecified amount of time.  Wasn’t there something in the news lately about China censoring foreign journalists’ access to the internet while at the Beijing Olympics?  Ask your local patriot about how these policies differ……

DHS officials said the policies applied to anyone entering the country, including U.S. citizens, and were needed to prevent terrorism.
