FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Introduction of Surveillance Reform Legislation

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the introduction of the “Safeguarding Americans’ Private Records Act,” a bill that if enacted would institute sweeping reforms to the unconstitutional “USA PATRIOT Act,” which is set to expire March 15, 2020, Jason Pye, FreedomWorks’ Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:

Support the Securing Americans' Private Records Act, H.R. 5675 and S. 3242

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and senators and ask them to support and cosponsor the Safeguarding Americans’ Private Records Act, H.R. 5675 and S. 3242. Introduced in the Senate by Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Steve Daines (R-Mont.) and in the House by Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Warren Davidson (R-Ohio), this legislation would reform Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and other aspects of surveillance under the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act (FISA) in order to protect Americans’ civil liberties and rights to due process and to increase transparency and oversight.

FreedomWorks Letter of Opposition to the Protecting Against International Terrorism Act, S. 2939

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to oppose the Protecting Against International Terrorism Act, S. 2939. Introduced by Senators Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), this bill would reauthorize Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and the “roving wiretap” and “lone wolf” provisions under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that are each currently set to expire on March 15, 2020. The bill would renew these surveillance authorities through December 15, 2027 while largely ignoring the constitutional issues raised by how they have been used.

Overseeing the Panopticon: Due Process and Transparency Reforms for Section 215

Four years after the passage of the USA FREEDOM Act, Section 215 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and its related “lone wolf” and “roving wiretap” provisions are back up for reauthorization. Section 215 is best known for being the portion of law used to justify the dragnet, warrantless mass collection of tens of millions of Americans’ phone call data, as revealed in 2013 by Edward Snowden. Although the USA FREEDOM Act of 2015 did make some substantial advances in curbing warrantless mass surveillance of Americans, disclosures over the intervening four years have borne out concerns that it was an incomplete reform.

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and senators and urge them to cosponsor the Ending Mass Collection of Americans’ Phone Records Act, H.R. 1942 and S. 936. Introduced by Reps. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the Ending Mass Collection of Americans’ Phone Records Act would end the National Security Agency’s controversial call detail records program.

The Orwellian H.R. 1 “For the People Act” threatens the very existence of our First Amendment right to speak and associate freely.

Time for Congress to Reform Civil Asset Forfeiture After Court Ruling

BY Adam Brandon

Back in 2015, an eye-catching headline appeared in the news. “Law enforcement took more stuff from people than burglars did last year,” the headline read. Think about that for a moment. That’s millions of dollars in cash, homes, and cars stolen not by burglars or carjackers, but by police departments across the country. What’s worse, most of the property has been seized from people who were not even charged with a crime. You’d think this was an anecdote from a former resident of the Soviet Union, but no, this is happening here in America, the land of the free.

Coalition Letter in Opposition to H.R. 1

On Wednesday, FreedomWorks sent a coalition letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Minority Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Senate Majority Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) signed by representatives from more than 30 organizations against H.R. 1. This legislation would have the effect of nationalizing elections, make the Federal Elections Commission a partisan entity, and have a chilling effect on political speech. Signers to the letter include Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, Pete Sepp of the National Taxpayers Union, Tim Chapman of Heritage Action, and David McIntosh of the Club for Growth. The text of the letter is below and a PDF of the letter and the signers can be found here.
