Mission: We are a proud group of Obama supporters who believe in his call for hope and a new kind of politics. Reject the politics of fear on national security, fix the PATRIOT Act, and get FISA right!
Opinions are split on S. 193. It is clearly better than S.149 but it falls far short of the safeguards introduced by the JUSTICE Act. Here's the American Library Asoociation's statement in favor of it: http://www.ala.org/.../advocate/index.cfm
We need sigificant new safeguards against National Security Letters, "sneak-and-peak", roving wiretaps, etc.. H.R. 67 simply continues the status quo.
We need sigificant new safeguards against National Security Letters, "sneak-and-peak", roving wiretaps. H.R. 514 simply continues the status quo.
Don't let Congress sneak PATRIOT Act Reauthorization through without a debate.
S.289 fails to introduce any additional safeguards and extends National Security Letters, roving wiretaps, and the FISA legislation until 2013.
The JUSTICE Act was introduced in the 111th Congress by Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ12). Get FISA Right strongly advocates for the reintroduction of this legislation in the 112th Congress.
The JUSTICE Act would renew two of the three expiring PATRIOT provisions, PATRIOT sections 206 (John Doe roving wiretaps) and 215 (FISA orders for any tangible thing), but would also add strong new checks and balances to those provisions and to the PATRIOT Act in general, especially those provisions dealing with the government’s authority to issue National Security Letters. If passed, the bill would also establish critically important protections for Americans against surveillance authorized under the FISA Amendments Act.
