Planning a vacation with Joe Cadillic is probably not a typical planning experience. 🙂

Since last year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) have been conducting immigration checkpoints in Hew Hampshire’s White Mountains.

NH’s motto ‘Live Free or Die’ is fast becoming a joke to all who visit.

Why would I say that?

Because this past Memorial Day weekend, State Police with DHS funding, conducted a DWI ‘saturation patrol’ in Conway from 9 PM-3 AM stopping ninety motorists. Anyone familiar with North Conway knows that most bars and restaurants close at 1AM and stopping ninety Conway residents would have caused a public outcry.

So who were the police targeting?

  1. NH Checkpoints Are A Travesty (Concord Monitor 6/5/18)

    Our hiking buddies on Memorial Day clued us in on the Border Patrol stops, saying they were trying to head home from the White Mountains a different way to avoid this. We discussed this, and we read the subsequent article (Monitor front page, May 30), and are embarrassed and horrified. The article mentions that this is “not a change in policy but an increase in funding.” How in the world do they get the funding if not a change in policy? Come on. So nice of the border patrol to let folks spend their money in the state all weekend and then end it with this. And in the process catch folks with a little leftover pot from their camping trip.

    New Hampshire’s White Mountains are its crowning glory and an attraction for folks from miles around. If immigrants are afraid to drive within 100 miles of the Canadian border, it’s a very, very sad day in our history. So glad to see ACLU involved in this. Our hiking pals and us are disgusted.

  2. NH begins using license plate readers to spy on everyone;

    “I find the use of these license plate scanners for any purpose to be abhorrent and not in our New Hampshire tradition,” said state Rep. J.R. Hoell, R-Dunbarton. “There’s no other way to describe what this is other than an intrusion into someone’s privacy.”
