Constitution Free Zones in America: Do you live in one?
Using data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, the ACLU has determined that nearly 2/3 of the entire US population (197.4 million people) live within 100 miles of the US land and coastal borders.
The government is assuming extraordinary powers to stop and search individuals within this zone. This is not just about the border: This ” Constitution-Free Zone” includes most of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas.

So…now the citizens of this country, even those who just want to live in peace, are not trusted 100 miles from the border. But really, people violate the Constitution in places all over the US: the police, politicians, etc. This just makes it official for these areas.
