“This is the [US] border, and you have no rights.”

Please, tell me this isn’t true.

It used to be a common saying, “If (insert nonsense here), the terrorists have won!” For instance, If I can’t go on vacation, the terrorists have won! If I can’t have a half-caf latté, the terrorists have won!

I hope this isn’t true.
