Has The US Entered A Post-Constitutional Era With Supreme Court NDAA Decision? | The Pontiac Tribune

Has The US Entered A Post-Constitutional Era With Supreme Court NDAA Decision? | The Pontiac Tribune | Common Ground The Facts First | Scoop.it
In 1944 the Supreme Court approved the pre-emptive detention of over 110,000 Japanese-Americans. The Court’s denial 70 years later proves that we cannot rely on 9 people in black robes to defend our freedom. It is now up to the states, cities, counties, and people of this nation to show the Supreme Court that it is not the final arbiter of our human rights. As 5 cities have already done so, I urge Americans across the country to begin action to ban these sections in their communities, raise awareness, and push back against this denial. If Washington D.C. thinks this is the last they will hear from us, they are very, very wrong.
