Yes, that's why I said it would be nice to be able to back up the data somewhere else.
That said, the border is a sort of constitution-free zone which does not (yet) extend to Google's servers. There is a certain amount of due process which must be followed to get at data stored there which, it seems, is not necessary at the border. So there is a significant advantage to putting the data there, even if the situation remains far from ideal.
