Save Habe - do it now

By Libby

One of the singlemost destructive acts of this administration was the gutting of habeas corpus. You have a chance today to reverse that. Sens. Leahy and Dodd are bringing forward their Habeas Restoration Act again and the current word is it will be coming up for a vote tomorrow morning. FDL has the details and toll free numbers to call in your support.

Habe has been the foundation of our legal system for centuries, dating back to the 1600s. It's vital that your Senators know it's important to you that this bill be passed. If you don't want to call, then at least email your representatives and tell them to support Amendment S. 2202. You can get direct access to your Senators' email forms here.
