NDAA Opponents Just Won Their Biggest Victory Since The Blocking Of Indefinite Detention


“The Michigan House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill today that would prevent any state cooperation with federal agents attempting to detain people without due process in Michigan, The Tenth Amendment Center reports.  Carl Mayer, a lawyer for the group of journalists and activists suing over the indefinite detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), told BI that the vote is ‘the most important development in this fight since Judge Forrest issued her permanent injunction‘ on section 1021 of the NDAA.”
