Feds: We will search through your laptop files at the border

I’m not too concerned about anyone finding “illegal” material, but I’ve kinda got a problem with the government making a copy of my entire archive of intellectual property (i.e. my writing) to store in some huge, possibly hackable database somewhere to eventually be “searched for terrorist stuff and child porn.” I can’t say that we plan on traveling outside of the country anytime soon, but I guess when we do we’ll just buy a cheap laptop when we get there or something? 🙁
