Border officials can’t have ’boundless’ access to search devices, court rules

A federal court in Boston ruled Tuesday that the suspicionless search of travelers’ electronic devices without a warrant is unconstitutional. Seizing phones and laptops at border points without reasonable suspicion violates the Fourth Amendment, according to the judgment. In 2017, a group of people whose devices were searched at the border filed suit against US Customs and Border Protection.
