Hunting for Non-White People: Border Patrol Conducting Nazi Style ID Checkpoint Road Block on Interstate 93 in New Hampshire

Skin Color was the Criteria. As part of the destruction process of the Jews, Hitler created an elaborate system of movement restrictions and identification measures that included personal Jew identification cards, passports marked with a J, assignment of names and the outward marking of persons with a yellow star. Jews age six years or older were allowed to appear in public only when wearing the Jewish star. Without the star (and meticulous record keeping) there was no way to tell who was a semite and who was not. The star enabled the police to pick up any Jew, anywhere, anytime. Seem familiar? In the system of racism/white supremacy there is no need for non-whites to wear a star; we are targeted by skin color.  [MORE] and [MORE].

From [HERE] Border Patrol agents were back on New Hampshire highways over the weekend, conducting a checkpoint on Interstate 93 near the Woodstock-Thornton town line.

“There were officers there with dogs and a big, white van, and there were about 50 to 100 cars stopped,” said Ginna Schonwald, of Barrington, who was coming home from a day of hiking when she was stopped at the checkpoint.

“When we got up to the officer, he asked us if we were U.S. citizens,” Schonwald said. “We said, ‘Yes,’ and he said, ‘Just go on your way.’”

Such searches are common in the Granite State, but one conducted last year was clouded in controversy after a New Hampshire judge ruled some of the searches were unconstitutional.

During Border Patrol stops made last year, several dozen people were charged with allegedly possessing small amounts of drugs for personal use after unlawful searches by cops.

The American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire represented 16 of the people charged in a lawsuit fighting the charges.

The courts concluded their Fourth Amendment rights had been violated, highlighting evidence collected by customs and border protection agents could not be used in court.

Attorneys representing the government in that case said the agents were in their jurisdiction and did not need warrants to conduct searches of people's vehicles.

As for Sunday’s search, it's not clear what agents were seeking. An official at the checkpoint told News 9 he was not at liberty to discuss specifics. State and local police said they were not part of the process.

Similar to racist Sheriff Arpaio's policy or "papers please" or "show me your papers" laws, the NH roadblocks are unconstitutional measures that target anyone with Brown or Black skin who an officer subjectively believes might be illegal based on physical characteristics. Clearly the measures are ant-Latino. But that is only part of the picture here - as Africans, Carribeans, Asians, Indians, Arabs and even African Americans can be stopped & detained if they subjectively appear to be undocumented to a cop [however that looks to "law & forcement"]
