I'm constantly being searched by the TSA at the Austin and DFW airports AFTER the initial search at the TSA checkpoint. They're snooping through my bags, checking my driver's license etc. while I'm walking through the terminal, waiting in line at the gate to get on my plane etc.

I know the Congress has exempted the TSA from prosecution under the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution (can Congress do this?). But has the Texas Legislature exempted the TSA from being prosecuted under Article 1, Section 9 of the Texas Constitution?

I've about had it with this TSA thuggery...
