Today’s Action: Demand Congress stop warrantless searches of Americans!

Backdoor searches – the innocuous name given to the warrantless searches of online communications of American citizens by the US government, thanks to a loophole in Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

The Senate will vote tomorrow on whether to renew Section 702 even though it has been used repeatedly to violate our Fourth Amendment rights which protect us from warrantless searches and seizures.

Contact your Senators today and demand they vote “No” on any renewal of Section 702 that doesn’t ensure our Fourth Amendment rights are protected.

Trump likes Section 702 because he says it’s used against “foreign bad guys on foreign land.”

As usual, Trump is wrong. Section 702’s loophole allows American citizens to be targeted with countless searches —literally countless, as the NSA has repeatedly refused to disclose numbers to Congress.

This violation of our rights is so flagrant that it is a rare issue defying partisanship in our divided times. In both 2014 and 2015 the House voted to close 702’s backdoor searches, and this week, Senators from both parties have threatened to filibuster. Still, the FISA renewal could pass with 702 intact if we do not act.

Every Senator has constituents who don’t want to be spied on in their own homes by their own government. Call yours today at 202.225.3121 and demand a “No” vote on Section 702, unless the backdoor search loophole is closed and our civil liberties protected.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Ambassadors from Trump’s “sh*thole” nations to resign in protest, and join the Americans telling the Senate to stop Jeff Sessions’ drug war escalation and decriminalize marijuana!
