Why should your property be ransacked by some goons just because some corporate farmers think by doing so it will keep their fruit unblemished?
It's really not about the fruit on the public side of this checkpoint...its mainly about control and taking inventory and gathering data about black (free) market goods entering into that oppressive tax hole called California.
I was told by Agent Brier that they also snitch to other governmental agencies. For instance in you have a pet alligator and they are not allowed in California they call the agency that handle "exotic" pets and report you.

Is this about fruit flies or about state tax revenue and control.
While the right to travel between the several states is not explicitly mentioned in the US Constitution, there is case law regarding the subject. Most recently Saenz v. Roe in 1999 in which Justice Stevens for the majority writes that although the word travel does not appear in the Constitution, the right to travel is 'firmly embedded in jurisprudence' and consists of three parts, only one of which clearly relates to these checkpoints. Stevens describes the right to enter one state and leave another as a component of the right to travel. The right to travel is also established in US v. Guest (1966) and Shapiro v. Thompson (1969). Prior to that, the Articles of Confederation specifically reference a right to travel.
Regarding this, SCOTUS says in its decision for Saenz v. Roe (1999):
'For the purposes of this case, we need not identify the source of [the right to travel] in the text of the Constitution. The right of free ingress and regress to and from' neighboring states which was expressly mentioned in the text of the Article of Confederation, may simply have been conceived from the beginning to be a necessary concomitant of the stronger Union the Constitution created.'
We had this encounter at the Winterhaven fruit inspection station (roadblock) checkpoint on the California Arizona border.
