Indefinite Detention Of Americans Is Outlawed

United States Senator Mike Lee posted the amendment announcement on his facebook page.

Today, the Senate overwhelmingly passed the Feinstein-Lee amendment that protects Americans from indefinite detention. By a vote of 67 to 29, the amendment was added to the National Defense Authorization Act and ensures that American citizens and permanent legal residents apprehended on American soil will be charged and have access to a trial. Senator Feinstein and I have been working on this for over a year in an effort to protect Americans’ due process rights.

    Really? Nobody gives a shit that indefinite detention is outlawed in America?

    Or – is it that folks realize that our political whores won’t pay any attention to this or any other law, when it comes to detaining anyone who Barry has declared is a “threat to national security”?

    nope. doesn’t make me feel better.

    ‘they’ have wiped their ass with the Constitution (6th Amendment), the republic may be dead, but i’m not.

    the solution lies in acting with integrity and networking locally.
