Urge Congress to Reject Ashcroft's Veto Threat
    #2297283 - 02/03/04 02:30 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

From: Matt Howes, National Internet Organizer, ACLU
To: ACLU Action Network Members
Date: February 3, 2004

Despite an unprecedented public relations offensive by Attorney General
Ashcroft and a veto threat from the White House, Congress is moving
toward revising the Patriot Act?s most dangerous provisions.

Buoyed by the groundswell of opposition -- more than 245 communities
and 3 states have passed resolutions in opposition to the PATRIOT Act --
momentum is building for legislation that would correct PATRIOT Act
provisions that allow for unwarranted investigations of personal records,
authorize secret ?sneak and peek? searches and roll back judicial
oversight.

This corrective legislation -- the SAFE Act -- would not repeal
commonsense provisions in the PATRIOT Act, but would instead revise those
provisions that infringe on our civil liberties without making us any
safer. Yet even this modest bill drew the wrath of Attorney General Ashcroft
who falsely said that it would, ?make it even more difficult to mount
an effective anti-terror campaign than it was before the Patriot Act was
passed."

Take Action! Tell your Members of Congress to cosponsor the SAFE Act
so we can be both safe and free.

Ashcroft may be on to something...if revising makes it more difficult to launch anti-terror campaign, a compromise of removing it altogether should benefit everyone! :laugh:
