No. A Border Patrol agent does not need to obtain a warrant or even have reason to suspect an individual is engaged in illegal activity before performing a search.
The Border Patrol made over 415,000 apprehensions in the most recent year for which data is available. While it is impossible to estimate how many illegal crossings were deterred as a result of Border Patrol efforts, the data demonstrates the scale of the agency's activity.
The Border Patrol operates more than 30 permanent checkpoints in four states located along major highways within 100 miles of the border with Mexico. The Border Patrol also operates a number of tactical checkpoints which are temporary and usually set up on secondary roads that are suspected of being used for illegal activity.
