Officers of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency are supposed to secure the U.S. border, but they've been setting up checkpoints inland--on highways on the Olympic Peninsula and at the Anacortes ferry terminal. Typically, the agents ask drivers and passengers about their citizenship. The ACLU opposes these checkpoints as an intrusion on people's freedom.
