There's nothing unlawful about this. The driver is being a self-righteous prick who has no idea how borders work.

These "border" checkpoints can exist almost 100 miles from the actual border. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Border_Patrol_interior_checkpoints

People who live in the area of them can find themselves having to cross them twice a day, every day, just to get to and from work. All while never even coming close to actually going over the real border.

I think a lot of the resistance to questioning you see in these videos are just people who are sick and tired of having to go through this day after day while simply trying to go about their business within their own country.

This American Life did a great piece about the checkpoints. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/540/a-front (Act 2)

Perhaps in Europe Nika, but in America this violates the very concept behind independent states and is an abuse of power and a violation of those states' rights and the right of the people to freely travel between states without showing papers. It is a fundamental part of our country and has been since its founding.

It is not illegal only in this way: https://youtu.be/nz20lu2AM2k
