I'm assuming we all know about the NDAA. The bill that allows for the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial. Our House of Representatives shot down the Smith Amash Amendment on the 17th. The Smith-Amash Amendment would have effectively repealed the NDAA, and removed the indefinite detention provisions. The House of Representatives voted it down. After confirming that they have not only read the bill, but approve of the treason it imposes on the American people, they passed the Gomash amendment. This amendment actually makes things worse, by giving the government up to 29 days to do what they will with a person, before extending them Habeas rights. The biggest argument against the Smith Amash amendment, as articulated by Rep. Buck McKeon, was that the amednment extended protections to non-citizens as well. The term "illegal aliens" was brought up to convince other house members to vote against restoring the bill of rights. I only need to say one thing to the bogus argument that the constitution should not apply to non-citizens. Who holds all of the proof of your citizenship, and can "lose" that proof at any time? Yeah, thought so.
