Journal sakshale's Journal: Risk of Laptop Seizure by Customs or Border Patrol Officers

The Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) is warning its members that under U.S. law, government agents may seize and search a persons laptop computer, computer discs, and other electronic media when that person arrives in the U.S. from abroad or departs from the U.S for a foreign country. They claim that the law applies equally to U.S. passport holders and non-U.S. passport holders. This appears to be based on a survey of its membership, with no specific laws or court cases listed.
