"I don’t need to be suspicious of anything. We’re not the police. I don’t need probably cause. You need to stop questioning me. Don’t ask why. Just open your bag. I don’t need a reason to check your stuff or YOU! And you shouldn’t be asking why. Don’t question me. If you don’t get that I can send you to secondary revision and have a supervisor explain that to you.
Your sentri is a privilege. Let’s see if you think it’s funny when I take away your card and you have to do 3 or four hours of line with the rest of them. Don’t question why you gotta open your bag just do it.”
- Customs and Border Protection Officer when I asked “Why do you wanna see my bags? I thought you needed to be suspicious of something.”
