US: Immigrants may be held indefinitely

Immigrants arrested in the United States may be held indefinitely on suspicion of terrorism and may not challenge their imprisonment in civilian courts, the Bush administration said Monday

Which apparently means that anyone on US soil who isn’t a citizen (illegal immigrants, resident aliens, people attempting to get citizenship) can be taken off the street and held in prison till they die, and they have no choice but to shut up and like it. True, the law says that they can only be held if they are suspected of terrorism, but if you don’t have any rights, there’s nothing to stop the cops from saying “I swear, he said he wants to blow up the White House. Put the hood on him!”

Well, this is the White House official argument, not necessarily the law of the land (although this interpretation was submitted by the US Justice Department). Sounds like a lot of gibberish to me. And to most Americans.

So Democrats, whatcha gonna do? Feel free to step in any time and stop this Soviet-style gulag.
