Government Responds to my Cert Petition at Supreme Court of the United States

It feels strange posting this after the massive loss at our high court, but here it is.  The government did not respond to my cert petition initially, but the SCOTUS called for the government to respond.  This is the government's response.

I will reply to the government's response shortly, and then the eight justices of the Supreme Court will decide if my suit about a thirty-four minute suspicionless interior Border Patrol checkpoint is worth hearing or not.

It really does feel weird bringing up something like a cert petition at this particular moment in time.

Those wishing to read my cert petition, which the government has responded to above, can do so here. 

The amicus brief from the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild and the Texas Civil Rights Project, in support of my cert petition, can be read here.

Those wishing to watch the thirty-four minute video of the suspiconless seizure that prompted this lawsuit can do so here.
