Will South Carolina defend the Fifth Amendment and Due Process..through the Tenth Amendment?
Yes, if State Senator Tom Davis has his way. An update on his public Facebook page yesterday announced that he’s working on just that:
Spent today drafting the NDAA Nullification Act that I will prefile in the SC Senate next month.
Indefinite Detention of people by federal authorities has been ‘authorized’ by the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), signed by Barack Obama at the end of 2011. Indefinite detention is a clear violation of habeas corpus, as protected in Article 1, and due process, as protected in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution. Under the Tenth Amendment, each state has the right, the responsibility, and the duty to protect its resident from federal overreach.
NDAA Nullification legislation has already passed into law in the State of Virginia, where Bob Marshall’s HB1160 garnered massive bipartisan support from the grassroots. More than 16 local communities have passed similar resolutions and ordinances as well. In Texas, NDAA Nullification under HB149 was introduced this month. And sources close to the Tenth Amendment Center tell us to expect at least 10 states considering the same in 2013.Details
