Although I'm as law-abiding as they come, I seem to be a favorite with airline security personnel. My carry-on bag is often searched (quite politely) and I am sent on my way. I'm afraid that one day, I'll be asked to comply with a much more intrusive search and I won't have any idea what my rights are. So, what ARE my rights when re-entering the U.S. from abroad with regard to strip searches? What are my rights regarding domestic (U.S. travel) for that matter? What about upon arrival in a foreign country? Can I simply refuse to let them search anything except my luggage and must they relese me within a certain period of time? I used to travel abroad quite a bit and will probably increase my travel abroad in the near future. I want to be prepared and feel confident in refusing to be strip searched if I'm ever in that situation.
