A brave and gutsy young man refuses to answer if he is an American citizen at a checkpoint, then refuses to pull over to a secondary line until his status can be determined.

End the end, the officers have no choice but to let him go on his way. But only because he refused to be intimidated into following their "orders/requests."

There is a lesson here for all of us...

Why would this video go viral? I for one am FED UP with the foreign invasion advancing through our southern border. Yes the traffic backup sucks, but I’ll gladly stop at a few checkpoints if it means we’re finally cracking down on illegals. Stop them, check them, ship them ALL back to their sh!t-hole country.

The context of the video is a bit hard to discern. It doesn’t identify where the driver is or what he is being stopped for. Hard to make a judgment call without that info.

I think maybe this took place in Arizona.

Here's a link to his blog: http://www.sanderson1611.blogspot.com/

The Youtube video has been seen by almost 150,000 people since it was posted on the 9th of July.

I absolutely guarantee you that that is NOT what they are looking for at these New York checkpoints. New York welcomes illegals with open arms.

The price of Liberty IS risk. Everyone loves liberty up and until the discussion of risk is introduced into the conversation.

If we quit educating illegals, did not allow them to buy or rent housing, and refused medical care then you would not need checkpoints.

I want bad ass border control. But checkpoints in the interior, even 20 minutes from the border is unacceptable. I don’t want DUI checkpoints, seatbelt checkpoints, and while we are at it let’s fire a full 60 percent of law enforcement, as the worthless gubment cheese swilling union thug heavies that they are. Yes, I am willing to accept the risk concurrent with that action.

If you want freedom, if you want liberty you must shoulder risk. If you talk about liberty but don’t talk about risk you are not serious.

There was a thread here a few back around March (?) about new bullet proof check point booths being ordered.

Anyone know the correct set of questions we should pose to them or which part of the state law or Constitution we need to carry in the glove box so we don’t get hauled in or shot for not complying?

The problem is that we are not cracking down on illegals, we are cracking down on citizens. Illegals get a go free pass. America is becoming a police state because they are intentionaly flooding the streets with illegals as an excuse for police excess. When they enforce the laws against illegals, then they might have standing reason to break the constitutional restraints on unlawful search and detainment. But Obama publicly and on record refuses to enforce the laws, and often breaks them. This is not a dictatorship, and if we do not resist it will become one. This man is a patriot.

The only fence these arsehat politicians will build will have the barbed wire to the inside.

If they're looking for illegals, it's probably to get them reported to INS so they can get them hooked up with some "community organizers" who will get them in line for amnesty and registered to vote before November.

Hell, I'd just settle for checks after someone is arrested, followed by speedy deportation. I agree with everything you say. How are my 4th Amendment rights negotiable when they won't even seal the border? This country is a shell of what it once was.

That's the desired response.

This is why the illegals are allowed to stay. (Once the illegals are all deported, people will start objecting to the checkpoint tyranny. If we let the illegals stay, people will gladly surrender their liberties.)

This is also why we import so many terrorists. The TSA couldn't get their grope on without terrorists running around loose.

It's the Hegelian Dialectic.

” Yes the traffic backup sucks, but I’ll gladly stop at a few checkpoints if it means we’re finally cracking down on illegals. Stop them, check them, ship them ALL back to their sh!t-hole country.”


Please don’t give up rights for the rest of us. I did the same as this guy when reporting to jury duty and they wanted to search my computer bag and have me go through the magnetometer.

The donut challenged Sheriff said he had been doing this for years and I informed him that he had been violating the 4th Amendment for those years.

He asked my why I was there and I told him it was a requirement of citizenship to report for jury duty when summoned. He then said he just throws out the jury summons. I then told him that was the big difference between the two of us, I obey the laws and he violates them. He gave up and let me through.

Rather than violating our right to move freely through this country by any mode of transportation, the government could simply and CONSTITUTIONALLY forbid any taxpayer money to be expended for anyone here illegally and impose huge fines any business caught hiring illegal trespassers. Turn off the huge freebee magnet and they will not come here.

As for Mud-slime maggots at airports, deport them all as their phony belief system has openly declared war on Western Civilization. We are at war declared by Islam and the enemy should be paying the penalty not every REAL American surrendering their rights.

The video appears to be from different occasions. The guy is wearing the same shirt to give the appearance it is the same.

It’s a simple “yes or no” question is he a US citizen. The last I looked, Arizona is being invaded my Mexican illegal immigrants.

And if this guy was really in a rush, he would say ‘Yes’ and he would be immediately on his way.

These checkpoints are horrible. The guy was held up for 30 minutes in traffic to ask whether he was illegal... twice in one day! (Same checkpoint?) I assumed that the Arizona laws that were passed were to check the illegal status of people who were lawfully stopped and suspected of a crime...

I might be quoting the ACLU, but enough is enough.. If stopped, ask: Why was I stopped, am I being detained, am I free to go.... politely refuse to be searched without cause.

By the way, this guy appears to be a good, God-fearing Christian HERO.

Yes, let's just rush through giving up what few rights we have left.

I have a stupid question, why are we harassing the American public to "find illegal alliens" if they're just going to be released anyway? Or, is this just another example of government efficiency at work?

There are better ways of doing this than by using Federal goons to stop an require citizens to show their papers, not to mention answer some stupid yes or no question. Do you really expect that to get the illegals out of America?

A better way would be for the State police to have a means to check via a driver's license check, work related checks, public service checks and etc. Don't forget that now, the Feds will not even accept illegal allien referrals from Arizona anyway...

You’re kidding, right? What makes you think there is any real, “cracking down on illegals”? Didn’t you hear about the border patrol stations being shut down, Napolitano and Obama giving the order for ICE agents to no longer cooperate with Arizona law enforcement. What about Obama unilaterally giving amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegals?

So you’re okay if YOUR constitutional rights are trampled upon? Okay with having to produce your papers on demand? YOU are the citizen. Why should YOU be the one forced to prove your citizenship?

I wouldn't call this exactly "harassment." And they ask the question because illegal immigrants, especially on border states, are intermixed with the local citizen populace. All released? I don't thinks so....Some are some aren't. Hopefully, the usurper Obama is elected out of office in 117 days or so along with his unconstitutional policies along with him not upholding US law.

There are better ways of doing this than by using Federal goons to stop an require citizens to show their papers, not to mention answer some stupid yes or no question. Do you really expect that to get the illegals out of America?

Sure there are, but I don't know this guy's true agenda. I expect the moral laws to be upheld by this government.

A better way would be for the State police to have a means to check via a driver's license check, work related checks, public service checks and etc.

Yes. But leftist agitators allied to illegal immigrants would be crying about a "police state" if they did that, which cowers the spineless politicos.

Don't forget that now, the Feds will not even accept illegal allien referrals from Arizona anyway...

That's a shame and hopefully that will change early next year when and if Obama is out of the Oval office.

And how do I prove I'm an American? I suppose we could start issuing internal passports, as in the old Soviet Union, but - as another poster said - liberty entails risk. I'll take the risks and keep my liberty. No checkpoints or "let me see your papers" in America - please!

I disagree that Mr. Anderson is part of the play, except that maybe he is playing the role of someone who is willing to do his part to protect our freedoms?

Ah, FreeRepublic. Home of Law and Order Republicans. You know,the kind that will join a Home Owners Association so he tell his miscreant neighbors how and when to cut the grass, and where to park the cars.

No liberty can be considered too precious not to give it up in order to transfer risk!
