URGENT: Habeas Corpus under Attack!

Immediate action is needed to preserve due process rights. The Senate is currently debating amendments to the Military Commissions Act of 2006 (S. 3901). The existing Senate bills on military tribunals would strip the rights of certain non-citizens to challenge their detention in a court of law.

An amendment offered by Senator Specter would reinstate habeas corpus and preserve core democratic rights. This amendment could be debated any minute. Please contact your Senators immediately and urge them to vote Yes on the Specter amendment.

Visit the Center for Constitutional Rights to call or email your Senators and learn more about the Specter Amendment.

Action needed immediately!
