DHS may sieze and keep laptops indefinitely

Washington Post article

The actual policy PDF

This is one of the reasons I don't like DHS. That "we can do anything we want and you can't object" attitude torques me right off. I want the same rights to their computers that they think they have to ours. And I suspect this is going to kill business travel from the rest of the world to the US in a hurry. No company's going to want to risk having expensive laptops (not to mention all their data) appropriated.
