I noted that the tape that ended at the 11:00 mark, was one where he screwed himself by generating reasonable suspicion by not pulling over to the checkpoint.

Probably no coincidence that he does not show that one to its conclusion.

It seems like the border agents where quite professsional.

Constitutionally, according to the Supreme Court, law enforcement can always ask for your name and identification, even without reasonable suspicion. Unless, there is something about there being a checkpoint without reasonable suspicion that changes that.

Seems to me that it is reasonable to have immigration checkpoints in border areas.

It would have been interesting to see how the agents would have handled it if he immediately said that he was a citizen. Unless they are using that answer as a foot in the door to ask unreasonable follow-up, seems like he is just having a ball.

I think it would be better if he tried to do that at the beginning of a shift and when there is less possibility of creating a bottleneck at the checkpoint. Seems like every situation involved that pressure on the agents. Seemed like they let him go to avoid delaying other drivers.

Seemed like the one situation where there was not bottleneck pressure was the one he screwed up and gave the officer a basis for reasonable suspicion and the one that he did not show to conclusion.

Interesting to watch, but I am sure that it is selectively edited and incomplete.
