Ashcroft = Palmer


Immigrant rights lawyer David Cole says Ashcroft's post-9/11 Arab roundup was just like the Palmer Raids of 1919. He urges the passage of a law to forbid jailing people without charges or a trial, even foreign nationals.

The [Civil Liberties Restoration Act] would bar the practice of blanket secret trials, reserving secrecy for cases in which the government can demonstrate a specific need. It would require that when the government locks someone up, it must inform him of the charges within 48 hours, and bring him before a judge within three days. It would limit preventive detention to situations in which the government actually has evidence that an individual poses a risk of flight or a danger to the community. And it would end "special registration," which selectively targeted men from Arab and Muslim countries for fingerprints, photographs and interrogations

Sounds like a good idea.
