Virginia, Tennessee, and Washington State are the first States to fire back at the federal government ( The Obama Administration for signing and the Congress for passing) for the National Defense Authorization Act's (NDAA) detention provisions.
In Virginia, HB 1160 was recently introduced. It protects against the unconstitutional detention of United States citizens. The bill “prevents any agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the military of Virginia from assisting an agency or the armed forces of the United States in the investigation, prosecution, or detainment of a United States citizen in violation of the Constitution of Virginia.”
Patriots in Tennesse introduced *HB 2619 by Representative Dunn (SB 2669 by Senator Campfield). The bill(s) “provides that a federal employee who is not designated as a Tennessee peace officer may not make an arrest or conduct a search and seizure in this state without the written permission of the sheriff of the county in which the arrest, search and seizure will take place except under certain circumstances. - Amends TCA Title 8, Chapter 7 and Title 38, Chapter 3, Part 1.”
In Washington State, HB 2759 was introduced. The bill condemns: “the unlawful detention of United States citizens and lawful resident aliens under the national defense authorization act for fiscal year 2012.”
Hopefully, other States will join the effort to protect the Constitutional Rights of all persons in the United States.
