Department Of Homeland Security Opening Mail

As the article states: “an 81-year-old retired University of Kansas history professor, received a letter from his friend in the Philippines that had been opened and resealed with a strip of dark green tape bearing the words ‘by Border Protection’ and carrying the official Homeland Security Seal.” Yes it is for the safety of those here in the U.S. and to prevent terrorism but I have but one thing to say on the subject:
“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”–Benjamin Franklin
