States Are Rebelling Against The Indefinite Detention Of American Citizens

For 49 years the
National Defense Authorization Act was a simple law signed off on by the President to give the Department of Defense the money it needed to get through another 12 months of spending. This year, the Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich) and senior member John McCain (R.-Ariz.) crafted provisions for the bill that many said would erode the 5th Amendment.

Now Bob Unruh at WND reports state and local officials are refusing to cooperate with federal plans to detain Americans — something the NDAA expressly enforces.

The bottom line is the government can imprison anyone suspected of, or even associated with, terrorism and it looks like some states are refusing to accept that.
From WND:

“Sources close to the Tenth Amendment Center say as many as 10 states will consider legislation or resolutions in response to the detention provisions in section 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA,” the organization is reporting. “Lawmakers in Rhode Island and Washington will likely introduce resolutions authored by the Rhode Island Liberty Coalition within the next week. Additionally, local governments, including Fremont County, Colo. and El Paso County, Colo., have passed resolution condemning the detention provisions.”
Tenth Amendment Center executive director Michael Boldin commented that “federal politicians never seem to repeal federal law.”
“It’s going to take ‘We the People’ in our states to stand up and say, ‘No!’ to this unconstitutional monster,” he said.
