Nullify NDAA Sections 1021 & 1022 In Texas. Here’s The Words. Which Texas Legislators Will Add The “Music”?
(The nullification of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012)
Whereas, the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides the United States federal government authorization to exercise only those powers delegated to it in the Constitution (Article 1, Section Eight) and nothing more. The guaranty of those limitations on federal power is a matter of contract between the several states in general, the citizens of the state of Texas in particular, and the federal government of the United States at the time the Constitution was agreed upon and adopted.
Whereas, Article VI, Clause 2, of the Constitution of the United States provides that laws of the United States are the supreme law of the land provided they are made in pursuance to the powers delegated to the federal government in the Constitution.
Whereas, the enactment into law by the United States Congress of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, Public Law 112-81, is inimical to the liberty, security, and well being of the citizens of the state of Texas, and was adopted by the United States Congress in violation of the limits of federal power authorized by the United States Constitution.
Whereas, the Office of the President of the United States has asserted the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against Terrorists allows for the President to indefinitely detain, without charge, persons including United States citizens and lawful resident aliens, whether or not they are captured within the confines of the United States.Details
