US Senate Votes Against Indefinite Detention For Caribbean Immigrants

WASHINGTON, CMC – The United States Senate has voted in favor of barring the online viagra prescription government from imprisoning Caribbean and viagra soft tablets other nationals who are US citizens and permanent residents and are arrested and held in indefinite detention without trial.

The Senate voted 67 to 29 in adding the measure, sponsored by Senators Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, and Mike Lee, Republican of http://www.cassidashop.com/cheaper-viagra-levitra-cialis Utah, as an amendment to the   National Defense Authorization Act, now pending on the Senate floor.

“What if something happens, and you are of the wrong race in the wrong place at the wrong time, and you are picked up and held without trial or charge in detention ad infinitum?” said Feinstein during the http://www.customersonly.com/alternatives-to-cialis floor debate.

“We want to clarify that that isn’t the case — that the law does not permit an American or a legal resident to be picked up and held without end, without charge or trial,” she added.

Feinstein said the amendment is aimed at clarifying that the US government not put US citizens arrested domestically in military detention.
