According to Frank Morales:
The law also facilitates militarized police round-ups and detention of protesters, so called "illegal aliens," "potential terrorists" and other "undesirables" for detention in facilities already contracted for and under construction by Halliburton. That's right. Under the cover of a trumped-up "immigration emergency" and the frenzied militarization of the southern border, detention camps are being constructed right under our noses, camps designed for anyone who resists the foreign and domestic agenda of the Bush administration.Morales maintains that this act unravels all laws protecting Americans from the federal government using military force against them whenever and whereever it dictates martial law-at-will.
And how did the Tennessee delegation vote on this assault on popular sovereignty? No Tennessean voted against it. Harold Ford, Jr. did not vote. Jim Cooper, the only Tennessean to vote against the Military Commissions Act, voted for it.
So, explain to me again how when Democrats retake Congress things will be different? How are these Democrats going to stop abdicating congressional power to the President?
