You're read the headline and you said: WTF? Indefinite Detention is unconstitutional. Actually no, it isn't. More than 70 years ago, a law was passed in Congress to allow this to happen. Let me explain
"When Obama signed to law the NDAA: Indefinite Detention, did you know that there was precedence and what Obama did was "legal"? How was it legal? Another Democratic President did the same thing...Roosevelt...when he signed Executive Order 9066 rounding up more than 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry. Congress passed: Public Law 77-503 (http://tinyurl.com/y3mw86) giving power to the military to detain American citizens during times of war.
Three men broke the law by not obeying Public Law 77-503 by not going to the concentration camps. They were arrested. They were Min Yasui, Fred Korematsu and Gordon Hirabayashi. More than 40 years later, all three men were found not guilty under coram nobis (http://tinyurl.com/8gxco9w) and their conviction records were overturned. But what about Public Law 77-503? Many attorneys say: because of coram nobis, Public Law 77-503 was legally overturned, mainly because of judicial review. The Supreme Court has the power to overturn a law created by Congress if they deem unconstitutional. No they don't.
ARTICLE III (http://tinyurl.com/ct4xuvu) does not give the power to the SCOTUS to overturn P.L. 77-503. Only Congress has the power. And because Congress has the power, Not one member of Congress, from 1942 to 2012, in 70 years, challenged P.L. 77-503. And because of what the Democratic party did 70 years ago, the Democratic Party 70 years later is just continuing the legacy."
I just want to give all the members of OWS heads up and I hope you share this.
