Trump To Veto Warrantless FISA Surveillance Of Americans, These 37 Senators Want It Passed

As Nationalist Review just reported, President Trump has promised to veto an unconstitutional legislative package that would allow law enforcement agencies to monitor the electronic communications of American citizens without a warrant. Below is a list of the Senators that voted to continue the warrantless surveillance.

Under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the U.S. government engages in mass, warrantless surveillance of Americans’ and foreigners’ phone calls, text messages, emails, and other electronic communications. Information collected under the law without a warrant can be used to prosecute and imprison people, even for crimes that have nothing to do with national security. Given our nation’s history of abusing its surveillance authorities, and the secrecy surrounding the program, we should be concerned that Section 702 is and will be used to disproportionately target disfavored groups, whether minority communities, political activists, or even journalists.
