The interactive map at Cato’s Checkpoint America displays the location of “border” checkpoints, along with accounts of abuses that have occurred there, court proceedings involving a given checkpoint, and more.
Eddington’s Checkpoint America features an interactive map where you can view the location of individual checkpoints; see overhead and ground‐level photography of the facilities; find physical descriptions of the checkpoints; and read (where available) press accounts, administrative actions, and court proceedings involving a given checkpoint.
“CBP agents operating these checkpoints routinely violate the constitutional rights of citizens and others who are forced to pass through them to get to work, go to the store, or make it to a vacation destination in the American Southwest,” wrote Eddington. “The need for this project, and for greater scrutiny of these checkpoints, is more pressing than ever.”
