On this July 4th weekend I thought it fitting to share a stunning factoid with you: the Border Patrol station in Rochester, N.Y. apprehended more than 1,200 people who did not qualify to be in the United States in 2007…
That’s more than any of the other 41 stations on the U.S./Canadian border. Andrew Burton , photography major at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications documented this find in the film above — take a look.
Now go celebrate your many freedoms by lighting up a sparkler… oh snap, looks like you’re gonna need a permit for that . Screw it, I’m lighting up anyway. Come get me policeman.
