Fix the PATRIOT Act

Thursday, February 10, 2011 at 9:48 am by

On February 8, the House of Representatives rejected a fast-track reauthorization of the PATRIOT Act. Members of Congress from both parties bucked the establishment to assert Congress’s responsibility to check and balance the executive branch. Two weeks before the vote, BORDC organized a grassroots lobby day, organizing supporters from across the country to visit Capitol Hill and share with members of Congress original research and compelling evidence of transpartisan grassroots PATRIOT Act opposition. Volunteers from BORDC and allied groups delivered this message to more than 170 congressional offices.

BORDC supports re-introduction and passage of the JUSTICE Act, which would fix many of the PATRIOT Act’s abuses of civil liberties and restore constitutional rights. President Obama himself echoed our concerns only three years ago.
