Where, prey tell, do you get Martial Law from an officer turning away cars with New York plates? Bit of a stretch there.

Me - I’m all in favor. This is a war with an invisible army that needs to be turned away. Too bad DeSantis didn’t act sooner and chase the spring breakers

Read back. This conversation turned to the discussion of Martial Law and the slippery slope. This is how it starts. Now everyone is ringing the "war bells". Now it's getting to be a "war" with the states all over again. Slippery slope!

And I pulled it back to the original subject. You’re being an alarmist over a governor’s smart move but enjoy your paranoia.

Texas has barred Louisiana plates. Arizona is considering barring California plates. Those that are still healthy don’t want to be overrun by those that are sick. Works for me.

"War" between the states all over again, not paranoia, it's happening.

OK, now for some perspective: My girlfriend's son lives in Rhode Island. They are NOT going door to door with armed national guardsman searching for New Yorkers. They are ringing doorbells and asking if there are any out of state visitors, and if so handing out INFORMATION on self-quarantine. This is a long way from the obvious violation of the 4th amendment suggested in the OP

When Moses was looking for somewhere to take the Israelites, God suggested he go to America.
Moses was horrified.
"Have you seen their Constitution?" he replied
"27 Ammendments, it's going to be nothing but trouble!"
"Oy Vey! We are having enough problems keeping these 10 bl**dy Commandments you dumped on us!"

According to the RI governor, they are explicitly looking for those who have been to NY door-to-door:

Quote:
"Right now, we have a pinpointed risk that we need to address, and we need to be very serious and that risk is called New York City," said Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo at a news conference Friday.
Starting Saturday, Rhode Island law enforcement officers and the National Guard will be "going door-to-door" in coastal communities, asking people if they've been to New York and requesting their contact information, she said

Also,the National Guard in Rhode Island is going door to door, checking on vacation homes, to insure that New Yorkers if present are self quaranting

Huge difference between "checking", "knocking on doors", "handing out information", "asking them to self-quarantine" and DOOR TO DOOR SEARCHES (which is what the British did in the years leading up to the revolutionary war, as well as Stalin, Mao, and Hitler)

Well, according to the RI gov, they are taking contact information from those NY'ers they find. And your comment about "asking them to self-quarantine" doesn't match up with news stories:

Quote:
On Friday Raimondo said state police would be stopping cars with New York license plates and doing house-to-house searches to identify people who recently traveled from New York and ordering them to self-quarantine.

I agree with you.
We don't need the National Guard coming onto our houses and telling us what to do.

Dare County, NC, has set up police roadblocks on the two roads leading within and are turning away just about everyone.
