The last time I remember them suspending constitutional rights in this country during a national emergency, I was 5 years old. I was sent to an interment camp with my family, without trial or due process, for four years. #NeverAgain
NO!! This is NOT a slope we want to get on. Suspending Constitutional Rights!? With this crew?! OH HELL NO!
This is a no. We are not allowing this.

The Trump administration is seeking to suspend habeas corpus, an incredibly essential Constitutional right. Be *very* aware that fascists use times of crisis to consolidate power, and this is exactly what that looks like.
I'm happy to give up going to the theater, office, location l restaurants for a while to keep my neighbors and family safe. I'm not giving up my civil rights to a totalitarian government.
Never let a good crisis go to waste - Autocracy Edition. This is freaking insane.

DOJ wants to suspend habeas corpus during the #CoronavirusPandemic. If they got their way, you could be held indefinitely without the opportunity to sit before a judge until the emergency was over. Scary as hell that they’d even ponder this. #DemCast
This is absolutely terrifying and you need to call tomorrow. The White House is asking for legislation that will allow them arrest you ‘indefinitely.’ And because they’re using the coronavirus as a cover it can be for as long as the pandemic lasts.
PAY ATTENTION America 🇺🇸 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
DOJ SECRETLY asked Congress to craft legislation allowing chief judges to indefinitely hold people w/o trial and suspend other constitutionally-protected rights during #coronavirus and other emergencies, according to a report by Politico.
THING TO FREAK OUT ABOUT! THIS! EMERGENCY! WEEEE EWWWW! 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
We will not let this happen. We will not let this happen. We will not let this happen. We will not let this happen. We will not let this happen. We will not let this happen. We will not let this happen. We will not let this happen.
This naked power grab shows why Attorney General Barr has no credibility and should resign.

Many have shared this link (& outrage). Fewer appear to have read the article, which says DOJ *asked* Congress for more powers. That’s the way it should work! Let’s save our outrage for things that deserve it; I have a feeling we’re gonna need it.
Not sure the source article of my previous Tweet was obvious. So here is the article alone. (h/t ) I'm enraged!
Trump Admin proposing to suspend habeas corpus until #coronavirus crisis has passed #COVIDー19 #Covid_19 #COVIDUSA
"to detain arrested people 'indefinitely'” is what the return to chattel slavery sounds like. Then of course they'll just start arresting all Black people. DOJ Wants to Suspend Certain Constitutional Rights During Coronavirus Emergency via
it’s so sad but I have to hand it to Mr. Barr, he actually found a way to push that decision without a vote under the guise of an emergency, I wonder who’s in an emergency right now?
This is a perfect example of Government overreach. We are not a #Totalitarian society. #ADOSPolitics #ADOSMississippi
And the DOJ has asked to limit habeas corpus.
Anyone remember a little tweet I wrote asking what civil liberties they would take using covid as an excuse?
An important reminder of the eagerness this administration has to exploit a crisis
It appears the US Dept of Justice wants to turn social distancing & quarantining into house arrest at their discretion & do it secretly. I fear now, come Nov, they will go neither quietly or peacefully. Please read this article than RT like crazy.
