Checkpoints In The San Juan Islands of Washington

The misty islands in Puget Sound of Washington that touch on Vancouver Island of Canada is in an uproar created by Border Patrol checkpoints.. International ferry travel has long been monitored by the Border Patrol. But the domestic ferries that wind through the scenic and wet San Juan Islands are now being checked -- to the outrage of locals and tourists. So far it hasn't broken any large people or drug smuggling operation. Only a hand full of undocumented local to the islands have been rounded up. (See LA Times article.)
