United and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ending Eavesdropping, Dragnet-Collection, and Online Monitoring Act - USA FREEDOM Act
Number of Co-Sponsors
Liberty for All's PositionSection 215 of the PATRIOT Act has been distorted and wholly abused by the U.S. intelligence community to engage in a massive, coordinated, and unconstitutional program of dragnet surveillance. The problem is so pervasive and severe the Rep. Sensenbrenner, one of the original authors of the PATRIOT Act, expanded on previous attempts to end the program and brought forth this legislation. The FREEDOM Act would help restore the Fourth Amendment and due process rights of American citizens. Liberty For All supports a complete repeal of the PATRIOT Act and is staunchly opposed to the dragnet collection and storage of the personal records Americans. We will continue to fight against the Orwellian police state and the unconstitutional misuse of our laws to advance a growing authoritarian agenda.
Current StatusThis bill was assigned to a congressional committee on October 29, 2013, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole.
