The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday (May 18) — such a busy day for the House! — voted against “an amendment to guarantee civilian trials for any terrorism suspect arrested in the United States.”
Press release quote from Hirono:
The guarantee of due process is one of the most fundamental rights in our country. Current law allowing the indefinite detention of an individual in America without charge or trial or requiring military custody is unacceptable. This is not due process. The amendment addressed these major constitutional problems.
