Amash Amendment to End Blanket Collection of American Records Under the PATRIOT Act by the NSA
Amendment to: H.R. 2397 - Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2014
Liberty for All's PositionBy prohibiting the NSA from spending any money on this type of surveillance, this amendment would have helped bring to an end the government's unwarranted, unnecessary, and wholly unconstitutional mass surveillance of Americans. The government collects the phone records without suspicion of every single American in the United States. This flies in the face of the Fourth Amendment and denies every American their constitutional right to be free from warrantless search and seizure as well as to be provide with due process under the law. Liberty For All 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.
