    ACLU Vermont: Surveillance on the Northern Border – Whiteboard Explanation

    The ACLU of Vermont has released a four-minute video detailing surveillance and privacy issues in Vermont and other states that are within 100 miles of the U.S. border. In 2008, while I was a visiting scholar at the ACLU’s Technology and Liberty Program, I worked on a project concerning searches and seizures of US citizens by Border Patrol agents far inland from the actual borders. The project found that fully two-thirds of the US population (197.4 million people) live within 100 miles of the country’s borders, where Border Patrol has been assuming broad powers to interrogate US citizens, creating a “Constitution-Free Zone.” Read more about it here. Watch the ACLU of Vermont’s video here.
