Colorado U.S. Rep. Jared Polis has joined a bipartisan effort on Capitol Hill to protect mobile phones from national border and airport searches, his office announced Tuesday. “The government should not have the right to access your personal electronic devices without probable cause,” he said. “Whether you are at home, walking down the street, or at the border, we must make it perfectly clear that our Fourth Amendment protections extend regardless of location.” Polis is joining privacy champions on Capitol Hill in running the “Protecting Data at the Border Act.” The bill is sponsored in the Senate by Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden and Kentucky Republican Rand Paul.

Gov. John Hickenlooper said on Wednesday that President Trump has taken a disruptive approach to governing, perhaps because of ulterior motives. “Many of President Trump’s appointments were unorthodox. It’s hard to understand exactly what he’s trying to make, and some of it I’m guessing is just trying to create a kind of disruptive atmosphere,” Hickenlooper […]
