Tell Congress: Support HR 3785

To Repeal Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act

Conservative Action Alerts had reported the dangers relating to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 in the last months of 2011 before it was signed into law by Barack Obama on New Years Eve.

Section 1021 of the NDAA contains language that endangers American citizens by nullifying essential liberties guaranteed by the Constitution -- rights to privacy and a fair trial.

HR 3785 -- which repeals section 1021 -- was introduced by Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) on January 18, 2012. A portion of Rep. Paul's statement is as follows:

"Section 1021 essentially codifies into law the very dubious claim of presidential authority under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force to indefinitely detain American citizens without access to legal representation or due process of law. Section 1021 provides for the possibility of the US military acting as a kind of police force on US soil, apprehending terror suspects – including Americans — and whisking them off to an undisclosed location indefinitely. No right to attorney, no right to trial, no day in court.”

HR 3785 reads simply: "Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112–81) is hereby repealed."

PLEASE STAND WITH CONSERVATIVE ACTION ALERTS, YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS, AND THE CONSTITUTION AND SIGN THIS PETITION AND SEND YOUR MESSAGES TO CONGRESS DEMANDING THEY PASS THIS BILL!
