According to Michigan Rep. Tom McMillin, a bill that would block state cooperation with any attempt to detain people in the United States under sections 1021 or 1022 of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act will come up for discussion in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Dec. 11.

The Michigan House of Representatives unanimously voted in favor of House bill HB5768 last week.

The committee meeting is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

If passed, the law would forbid any state employee or agency assistance with the Federal government – in any way – in the detainment of people under the 2012 NDAA.

“…no agency of this state, no political subdivision of this state, no employee of an agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state acting in his or her official capacity, and no member of the Michigan national guard on official state duty shall aid an agency of the armed forces of the United States in any investigation, prosecution, or detention of any person pursuant to section 1021 of the national defense authorization act…”


If you live in Michigan, contact Senate Judiciary Committee members and urge them to pass the bill out of committee. You can find committee members and contact information HERE.
