ACLU

We're going to need more jails.

Mr. President,
I have often wondered how far you and your administration would go to quell dissenting opinion. We have seen you infiltrate and monitor anti-war pre-screen audience members at Republican rallies, erect fenced in pens for demonstrator’s miles away from republican leaders platforms and now you have revoked university professors' visas because you don't like their ideological or political views.

The ACLU is
tracking about 15 cases where academics have been refused entry because of their beliefs and nothing else.


It is obvious what you want to do to all the American people who disagree with you or have different beliefs.

Your recently proposed
legislation allowing you can incarcerate American citizens without due process or access to a lawyer for an indeterminate amount of time if you SUSPECT them of having terrorist ties.



This is not new; you held Jose
Padilla aka "dirty bomber," an American citizen for three and a half years without charging him with anything. The courts finally pressured you to either charge or release him. In three in a half year's time with the best lawyers you had you could not find any evidence to charge him with terrorism or in possession of explosive materials; but you did charge him with, "conspiring to kill or injure or kidnap people overseas." The proof you have obtained has been described by one District Court Judge as "very light on facts."

If political dissent is a good reason to keep university professors out of our country, it should be good enough to put dissenting Americans in legal limbo, like Padilla.

If you get your way, you may have to build more
prisons and we have more people in prison than any other nation now. America spends $60 billion to keep 2.2 million people behind bars.

Cheney knows a great company that can handle no-bid contracts.
