I suggest two things.. 1. You are making more out of this than their really is.. 2. IF you don't like the rules, you don't need to come here.. And don't give me some sob story about it being your job because what that is saying to me is you are being PAID to endure all this pain you claim, which makes it doubly shallow if you ask me.
I am not. I'm not comparing life on PRNK to the US, but the fact that getting your electronic devices searched on the border is a true concern when traveling to both. I don't honestly know how common this is, but i can tell you for a fact that it is happening right now. And it sucks.
Also, sorry but the "if you don't like the rules..." argument is utter bullshit. Of course i don't like the rules; they make no sense at all. There is no reason whatsoever for a borders officer to ask for your laptop/cellphone password - never mind the security concerns involved.
PS: Incidentally, i've been considering the option of relocating to the US for a while now. Stuff like this doesn't help.
