      Haisam Elsharkawi, a US citizen, claims he was cuffed, hauled away, and grilled by border officers until he agreed to surrender his smartphone. The unlocked device was then inspected by officials, it is alleged, and is believed to have been imaged, aka a copy of its files taken, as he waited to fly out to the Middle East.

      Attorneys for Elsharkawi on Monday issued a summons against Uncle Sam, and earlier this month sought to haul into court Homeland Security, and the Customs and Border Protection agency as well as the CBP officers who allegedly detained him at Los Angeles International Airport in 2017.

      That is just a display relic in a museum somewhere, not worth the parchment it’s written on.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
