hey guys first post here, I've been searching for a news release of this EO and there is nothing at all about it. It's an outrage, talk about the best place to hide something is in plain sight, they flaunt it right on the white house page yet theres no press coverage whatsoever.

I may be confused by all of this but this is section 2c of the exec order signed by reagan.
By taking out that section it seems to me that he is telling international groups that they do not have immunity to search and seizure. The sections before and after grant broad immunities to intl. governments doing work on our soil.
Perhaps someone with a better mind can explain why this is bad.
it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words "except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act" and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.

Isn't this an illegal use of the EO privilege? This seems like a set of policies which would fall under International Treaty Law, yet another example of an area reserved for the legislature which the executive is intruding on.
EO's cannot be used for matters which fall under the powers of the other branches of government. Too bad no one in the Senate or Congress will stand up and do something about it.
I am more inclined than ever to think the sleeping giant expired several decades ago and will never be awakened from the cold dead state it is in.
Here's the text of 2(c), which this EO now has applying to INTERPOL:
(c) Property and assets of international organizations, wherever located and by whomsoever held, shall be immune from search, unless such immunity be expressly waived, and from confiscation. The archives of international organizations shall be inviolable.
