VIDEO: Border Patrol Attempt To Seize Phone From Libertarian Filming Inland Checkpoint Stop
Agent: “I don’t know if it’s a weapon”

Video that surfaced over the weekend shows border patrol agents close to El Paso, Texas attempting to seize a libertarian activist’s phone as he was videoing what he believed to be an unconstitutional checkpoint stop.
Radio host Tony Stiles captured the exchange as he and two colleagues were traveling to Florida from California for a public appearance. The journey did not involve a border crossing, and again raises concern over the legality of inland checkpoints.
