Senate Bill 2689 was introduced by Senator McDaniel of Mississippi to fight against the NDAA. Mississippi makes the 8th state to introduce legislation against NDAA so far this year. Currently the bill sits in the Senate Judiciary, Division A Committee.
“The Legislature of the State of Mississippi, condemns in no uncertain terms Sections 1021 and 1022 of the 2012 NDAA as they purport to (i) repeal the Posse Comitatus doctrine and authorize the President of the United States to utilize the Armed Forces of the United States to police the United States of America, (ii) indefinitely detain persons captured within the United States of America without charge until the end of hostilities as purportedly authorized by the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, (iii) subject persons captured within the United States of America to military tribunals, and (iv) transfer persons captured within the United States of America to a foreign country or foreign entity.”
SB 2689 continues, “The State of Mississippi shall not provide material support or participate in any way with the implementation of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 within the boundaries of this state. The Department of Public Safety is hereby directed to report to the Governor and the Legislature any attempt by agencies or agents of the United States Federal Government to secure the implementation of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 through the operations of that or any other state department.”Details
