On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and representative and ask them to support the Protecting Data at the Border Act, S. 823 and H.R. 1899, introduced by Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Reps. Jared Polis (R-Colo.) and Blake Farenthold (R-Texas). The bills would safeguard the Fourth Amendment rights of American citizens at the border.

Key Vote NO on the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, S. 139

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, S. 139. The bill would reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) for six years. Despite some tweaks to the original text produced by the House Select Committee on Intelligence, the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act continues to represent an assault on the Fourth Amendment.

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, H.R. 4478.

This vote will be double weighted on FreedomWorks’ Congressional Scorecard.

Congress Poised to Jam Through Reauthorization of Mass Surveillance

BY Jason Pye and Sean Vitka

Congress doesn’t have much time left on the legislative calendar for the year, but there’s still a lot on the agenda to get across the finish line. In the few remaining days, Republicans hope to pass a tax reform bill and either another short-term continuing resolution or an omnibus to fund the government.

Wisconsin Bill Tackles Civil Asset Forfeiture

Imagine living in a country where transporting property from one place to another could result in your property being seized by the government. The process of civil asset forfeiture makes it so the mere suspicion of a crime is enough for law enforcement officials to take and keep possessions. Law enforcement officials in this are able to keep a portion of the assets that they confiscate so the system is frequently abused.

North Carolina Considers Bill to Simplify Criminal Code

Hot dogs are becoming the unlikely symbol for overcriminalization in the United States of America. More specifically, the heavily codified permit system which profits the state and harms small business owners. On September 9th of this year a man was selling hot dogs on the street in Berkeley without a permit when campus authorities approached him and took money straight from the vendor’s wallet. While law enforcement said that the money was evidence, the action is representative of the larger issue at hand.

A Lesson from post 9/11 Politics

As we conclude this month that marked the sixteenth anniversary of September 11th, we must carry with us the lesson that the attack brought to our collective quest for freedom. Terrorism is a threat we all fear. While we must try to prevent American citizens from being murdered by terrorists, we must also guard against the eroding of our rights. The USA Patriot Act has most affected freedom at home. In memory of the victims of 9/11, we should consider the lessons that the attacks and the fallout taught us about the whimsical nature of freedom.
