What does "automatic" mean in this context? I find two definitions for this word-1.done without thinking. 2.always happening as a result of an action.
But I am not sure which one is right for "automatic" in this context, so I hope somebody could take a look for me.
Thanks for your help.

In this sentence, it means "no question asked" or "standard procedure in law enforcement "
