(Studio: Carol Lin) Live discussion held with CATO Institute Timothy Lynch† and former deputy assistant attorney general Victoria Toensing† about whether the government is violating civil rights by ordering random vehicle searches at airports. [LYNCH – says the Transportation Security Administration is bossing local law enforcement around, which is unconstitutional; comments on the effectiveness of the program.] [TOENSING – says the directive is a response to a terrorism threat; says there is a federal law giving the TSA responsibility for security at all airports; comments on the possibility of discriminatory searches.]
