IndependentSentinel: James O’Keefe is the latest target of an abusive, overly large government.
James O’Keefe, the conservative filmmaker was detained at the airport after the USCBP (Customs and Border Patrol) questioned him about his federal government investigations.
O’Keefe mentioned ACORN when asked but the agent quickly went to the one he conducted involving the federal government at the borders.
O’Keefe said, “That was the one where I legally waded into the Rio Grande dressed like Osama bin Laden and embarrassed the federal government. DHS secretary was grilled under oath. Are you telling me this is retaliation for that?”
The agent responded, “I’m telling you that each time you go through here you will need to give an extra hour because we will do this each time. You have a prior criminal record and broke the law crossing into the United States unlawfully.”
O’Keefe then said, “It wasn’t unlawful, I did nothing but wade back and forth. Millions of Mexicans cross and you don’t detain them for unlawful entry.”
After another brief exchange, O’Keefe was hauled off. more
