DOJ Seeks Emergency Powers

In these times of crisis, we all want our government to do everything they can to help people. Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead to lawmakers and judges giving vast more powers to law enforcement agencies, often at the expense of your constitutional rights. The Justice Department has quietly asked Congress for the ability to ask chief judges to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies — part of a push for new powers that come as the novel coronavirus spreads throughout the United States. It is important to remember that what makes our Country great is that even in times of crisis, we still have important rights guaranteed to us by the United States Constitution. If you or a loved one is facing prosecution by the government, do not let them use the public’s fear of this virus to suspend your Constitutional rights.
