CBP Handout on Inspection of Electronic Devices

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has a handout on Inspection of Electronic Devices, available here.  There is a section on “Why You May Be Chosen for an Inspection,” but it omits any mention of CBP’s legal position: that a person may be chosen for any reason or no reason at all: no reasonable suspicion is required. The notice also explains the procedures for return of seized devices.
