Supreme Court upholds habeas; tell Congress to respect the..

With its landmark Boumediene decision, the Supreme Court has spoken: detainees at Guantánamo are entitled to the Constitutional right of habeas corpus—the fundamental right to challenge the legality of one’s detention. Now Congress must listen. The last time the Supreme Court ruled that detainees have the right to habeas corpus, Congress turned around and passed the Military Commissions Act in an effort to strip that right away. Don’t let Congress trample on justice again. Call on your Members of Congress to respect the Supreme Court’s decision, and respect justice. Congress must not pass new legislation that would attempt to strip habeas corpus or replace it with an inadequate substitute. Ask Congress to respect the Supreme Court’s determination that the U.S. court system has the ability and the wisdom to hear these habeas petitions.
