The San Diego criminal defense lawyers at the United Trial Group (www.unitedtrialgroup.com) would hereby like to provide a brief explanation of the legal rights afforded to those who are attempting to cross the border between Mexico and the United States in regards to privacy, searches and seizures and how these situations apply to the United States Constitution.
Generally, courts and legislatures have acted in recent years to strip down the protections against searches and seizures provided by the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution when such searches and seizures are conducted at an international border. As a result, searches and seizures conducted in these locations can usually be conducted without a search warrant and without reasonable suspicion, which are the usual requirements for searches and seizures that are conducted in other settings or locations.
