And notwithstanding herculean efforts by many, as well as laws enacted to afford trillions of dollars of economic relief to impacted businesses and individuals, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the U.S. economy has been severe.

Top Reasons to Live in Buffalo

As a born-and-raised Buffalonian with deep ties to the Queen City, I’ve been so thrilled to observe the strides that my hometown has made in recent years. In my job as a recruiter, I always enjoy selling candidates on the beauty of Buffalo, a city that I consider to be the underappreciated gem of New York. Buffalo has begun to establish itself on a national level through the city’s recent efforts to revamp and revitalize itself. Whether you’re fresh out of college, raising a young family, or looking to retire, Buffalo is a place that people of all ages can call home.

How to protect information on your electronic devices at the border

If you plan on crossing the border with an electronic device, it’s important to know your rights and to take precautions to keep your information safe. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) officers have far greater ability to conduct searches at the border than they would inside of the U.S. CBP can search the contents of your electronic devices like phones, tablets, cameras, and laptops without probable cause that you are doing something wrong, and without your permission.

Your smart phone at the U.S. border

Our lives are extensively documented on phones, laptops, and on social media. Some of this information is very personal, and a lot of travelers may wish to keep this sensitive data private. However, each time you enter the United States, regardless of your status or documentation, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) determines your admissibility to the country, and part of this determination may include searching a traveler’s electronic devices. With these types of searches becoming increasingly common, it has never been more important for individuals to know and understand their rights at the border.
