The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has released new rules for border agents searching travelers’ laptops and other electronic devices, but the revised guidelines won’t quiet complaints from the American Civil Liberties Union.

The new guidelines, unveiled Thursday, continue to allow U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to search electronic devices during border crossings without suspicion of wrongdoing. Both CBP and ICE are part of DHS. (PC World)
