On March 11, President Donald Trump signed into law a new anti-terrorism bill.
This is a law that makes it easier for the government to take over the police departments in the United States.
The legislation is part of the Countering Violent Extremism Act of 2017.
Under this legislation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will be given broad authority to take on law enforcement agencies, such as local police departments, that they deem to be too militarized.
The bill will also expand the use of “law enforcement” in national security and counterterrorism activities, giving the FBI greater powers to conduct counterintelligence investigations, conduct intelligence gathering, and conduct counterterrorism operations.
Under the Counterterrorism Act of 2001, federal agencies can obtain federal court orders to “take action” against any law enforcement agency, such the FBI, which has been targeted by ISIS.
But under the Counterterror Act of 2018, the FBI will have more authority to use the military to attack ISIS-controlled areas.
In short, this bill will give the FBI even more power to attack targets in the U.S. This bill also expands the FBI’s ability to target foreign nationals and domestic law enforcement officials.
The law also allows the FBI to engage in targeted killing, which was once a limited exception under the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF).
The law now allows the federal government to target anyone who is considered a threat to the national security of the United State, including any American citizen or permanent resident.
Under this legislation , the FBI would have the ability to use military force against any U.N. peacekeeping or peacekeeping-related missions.
It is also being expanded to include the use by U.K. police forces and military to assist with military operations overseas.
This bill is part, part of a larger effort by the Trump administration to increase the federal capacity to fight ISIS, and expand its domestic powers to fight and detain American citizens without trial or charges.
In the wake of this bill, former US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power said:This bill would empower the FBI and other federal agencies to take action against anyone who commits a crime against the United Kingdom or the United of America.
It would also empower the United states to conduct counterterrorism activities against foreign nationals without any due process protections, including in the form of due process by an American court.
Under a Trump administration, this is exactly what we have seen in America since the 2016 election.
The administration is seeking to use federal power to intimidate and arrest its own citizens, including citizens of other countries.
This has been going on for decades.
It has become increasingly clear that the administration is not going to stop this behavior, even if Trump were to be impeached for it.
We must resist and defeat this new bill.
