Texas Bill Fights Items In The National Defense Authorization Act

The Texas Senate is (finally) standing up against the NDAA!

I posted a blog quite some time ago about the NDAA.  This bill contains a passage that pretty much allow the government to round up anyone they want, anytime they want and hold them for as long as they want without warrants, evidence, or even a stated reason.

Just; “you, come with me“. That’s it.  Texas however is now voting on a bill (Texas HB149) that makes this illegal in texas.  (It’s already illegal under our United States Constitution of course…) The current administration in Washington doesn’t seem to have read the constitution … not all of it at least … but Texas, thankfully, isn’t sitting still for this one!

Now, to be fair, the NDAA does have some important provisions in it and Texas HB149 does NOT express any problem or condemnation for those items.

Only the ones that strip away YOUR rights! (Read the entire bill.)

If you think unlawful, warrant-less detainment and imprisonment (of no set duration) is unconstitutional, illegal and just plain wrong, please contact your representatives and tell them so!

There’s a sample letter below that you can rephrase (or just copy and paste “as is”) into the appropriate reps email!

  •  In Re: Support for HB149 Texas Liberty Preservation Act/Nullification of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.
  • Dear Representative:
  • I respectfully urge you to support HB149 which Nullifies Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act. These changes by our federal government are a slap in the face to civil liberty, an affront to our Bill of Rights and due process, and just another example of Washington forcing unconstitutional authority allowing the President to carry out police state actions under the label of “keeping us safe.”
  • In defense of our fundamental constitutional rights, I urge you to stand up for the Constitution and support HB149 with a “ Yes” vote. This bill makes section 1021 1nd 1022 illegal in the state of Texas and includes criminal penalties for federal agents who attempt to carry out such “indefinite detentions” within the state of Texas – 1 year in prison and up to $10,000 fine.
  • Thank you for your support in this matter.
