For those worried about probable cause violations, you should be more concerned with PC violations by game wardens, if you hunt or fish. Merely the act of hunting or fishing opens you up to warrantless searches of your vehicle including trailers and RVs. I pretty much link AG and DFW together, as far as what they are concerned with, namely, protecting our natural resources.

LOL. Bet you never went thru a "Roadside Safety Inspection" in a CMV.

I find it interesting that, largely, those who are so enthralled by protecting their natural resources are also those that believe that globalization is the direction humanity should go.

The more you open your locality up to global resources the more you risk your locality.

Not a poke at California but fifty years ago if a farmer did things wrong and sent out Romaine Lettuce that was infected with a life threatening bacteria his customer base was maybe a few hundred people. Earlier this year there was a nationwide recall on Romaine Lettuce that was produced by a California based grower. Over 300 million people were potentially in danger.

It's great for California that it is the food basket for the USA but it sucks if you are a victim of the failure of big business' policy of centralization. It's time to realize that centralization is dangerous and we need to step back a little and understand that if there's a single producer of anything there's a single point of failure.

So how are your Ash trees doing up there in Michigan - no way some little bug could kill thousands of trees. Oh - I hear that those Asian Carp are good eatin.


What Ash trees? (You've obviously been here) and yes - we are sweating the Asian Carp while the Great Lakes States and the Corps of Engineers decide what to do next.....(insert sound of chirping crickets)

On the other hand, as I travel to visit Florida, I see our invasive Phragmites are alive and well and spreading like wildfire (literally) down south... they're kind of pretty, actually - until they catch fire.

Explaining the purpose of the question and asking where you have been are reasonable - refusing to accept your answer and entering your RV without permission isn't reasonable. Agricultural inspections don't overrule your Constitutional Rights. I have crossed the Calif border hundreds of times over the years and never give much thought to the inspections ... but these days I would likely deny the inspector access to the interior of my RV. Probably becoming an angry old fart or likely somebody who is upset that my former home (Calif) has lost its way.

The inspector didn't enter without permission. She asked to enter - the OP said no - she didn't enter.


The truth is there was no violation of anyone's rights. Just a visitor who got mad because he thought he was "being targeted" (hmm, not so nice is it?) and gave an attitude, and an inspector who returned the attitude.

OP here, Did I give attitude? Is lowering the window and saying good morning attitude? That is precisely what I did.

Authoritarian government at work.
If she had started of with explaning that there were a few pest coming from the East coast, she still would'nt have gotten in,instead she immediately fell back to page one sentence one of every government security training manual,"Control the situation" Here there was no situation to bbe controlled but she felt she needed to any way.
Don't give a hoot what anyone thinks. No warrant no entry,plain simple and final!!!!

Well, let me tell you pitch and a few others that claim agents "do not have the right". The agent could have given you the "pull over there and wait" speech. From there the agent could have called in the big boys to search your vehicle and trailer. They could have torn everything apart and then given you a piece of paper advising you to get it put back together by a professional before continuing on your way. Fact

That's it,, I'm outta here

Wow! That makes for an interesting government. Sounds like the one my parents and grandparents ran from.
