Bill gives Homeland Security Director Power to Suspend Law

Via the Ithaca Action Network

The Daily Kos reports that House Bill 418 gives the Director of Homeland Security the sole discretion to suspend any and all laws he sees fit to secure our country and its borders and allows no court to bring a case about it or damages resulting from any action to close borders or roads, in the event someone is arrested or civil liberties are suspended.

This is a potentially very dangerous assault on our basic freedoms. Contact your Congressman. Click permalink for contact information for Ithaca areaFor Ithaca:

It's passed the House, but there's still a little time to contact Senators and try to stop the bill.
