DC's "Papers, Please" Checkpoint: Unconstitutional

We mentioned the "Papers, please!" checkpoint a while back.

Volokh is on this, and concludes that it is un-constitutional.

However, a "drunk-driver" checkpoint IS constitutional. That was an idea that Paul Bucher advanced during his campaign for AG--and was the specific reason that I was distinctly un-enthused about him.

IOW, the Supremes were wrong in their conclusion.
