Urgent Alert for Those Stateside
Restore Habeas Corpus
This week, the Senate will hold its first up-or-down vote on restoring habeas corpus. Tell your Senators to support the Specter-Leahy amendment to the Department of Defense Authorization bill.
Poor Habeas has been missing since September 2006 when Congress passed the Military Commissions Act of 2006 (MCA), which stripped the right of habeas corpus for the first time since the Civil War. We have all been searching for him since.
Tell your Senators that it is time to bring back habeas corpus and restore our Constitution.
