After the latest inland border checkpoint incident with News Now Houston, I decided to pull up the oral argument and final decision of the Richard Rynearson case which made waves back in 2013. I've made some improvements to the audio which can't be heard in the original audio recording. For a quick summary, two border patrol agents lost qualified immunity because they made the stop last longer than what was needed legally in retribution for a man enforcing his rights to refuse to answer additional questions beside the needed question about him being a US citizen while showing proof that he was a US citizen. All other instances of qualified immunity were upheld. Final quote: "Agents Lands and Perez failed to demonstrate their entitlement to qualified immunity because the law is clearly established that immigration officials may not detain travelers longer than reasonably necessary to investigate their citizenship status. For the foregoing reasons, I would reverse the judgment of the district court and remand for further proceedings."
