If you, an American citizen who can trace his or her ancestry to the Mayflower, return home from a trip abroad, US border agents can take your phone, tablet, or tablet — and demand you open its data to them.

The government says this is completely legal. And yet others say it’s a violation of the Fourth Amendment, which guarantees your right against unreasonable searches and seizures.
