FISA Passes House: Dark Day for the Bill of Rights

FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs Jason Pye made the following statement after passage the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, S. 139, in the House:

“It’s a dark day for the Bill of Rights. Sadly, a majority of the House Republican Conference and many Democrats chose to ignore the Fourth Amendment in today’s votes. The erosion of the civil liberties protected by the Bill of Rights is clearly a bipartisan problem. We thank Reps. Justin Amash, Andy Biggs, Jim Jordan, Thomas Massie, Jim Sensenbrenner, and others who took a stand today for the Fourth Amendment.

“The fight over FISA reform now turns to the Senate, and we will do everything we possibly can to support Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee as they work to reform this law."
