Voice: Fed up with BP Winterhaven checkpoint

March 22, 2002

I work in Winterhaven and I am so fed up with the new Border Patrol roadblock on Interstate 8 just past the California inspection station.

I am an American citizen and I don't appreciate having to on a daily basis go through a gantlet of interrogation, car inspection, threats, drug-sniffing dogs, etc. This is NOT at the port of entry — this is on an American highway going from one place in the U.S. to another!

We all know the real crooks are the Border Patrol and INS agents!

Is anybody speaking out against this?
