After the Fact, Senate Committee to Hold Hearing on Having “Legalized” Lawless Imprisonment

Senate Judiciary Hearing Wednesday, February 29, 2012 10:00am, EST

The Due Process Guarantee Act: Banning Indefinite Detention of Americans

In December, Congress passed the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorizing the military to arrest and imprison civilians without charge or trial, based on suspicion alone.

On Wednesday at 10:00 a.m., the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the NDAA. This first-ever hearing on the NDAA indefinite detention provisions is an opportunity for US citizens to INSIST that this unconstitutional statute be repealed. Congress needs to hear from you.

Wednesday’s hearing will be broadcast live on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s website.
