Following up on their earlier efforts to prevent the stripping of fundamental legal protections in the Military Commissions Act, Senators Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) have introduced the Habeas Corpus Restoration Act of 2006.

The bill would restore basic legal and human rights for 12 million lawful permanent residents in the United States that were rolled back as a result of the passage of the Military Commissions Act of 2006. Below is Sen. Leahy’s statement on the introduction of the bill, as well as his co-sponsorship of the Effective Terrorists Prosecution Act of 2006.

Thankgod there are some people in the government who understand the basic idea of a human being having rights.

What chance does this have in being put through congress?

Does this mean that senators are going to start moving AGAINST laws created by this occupational government?

Its a pretty BOLD title

About time someone wakes up and decides that this has gone far enough.
Good to see that some people still care about people's rights.
