Re: A US-born NASA scientist was detained at the border until he unlocked his phone

I think EEUU said it about the same endless arguments from the same members.

This news piece was put it in a separate thread just because he was flying from Chile. I wouldn't even bring it in other case, there is too much US-centered content on the Internet in the last year.
