Why Doesn’t Your U.S. Rep Support The End Warrantless Surveillance of Americans Act?
Yesterday, a Democrat and two Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives introduced the End Warrantless Surveillance of Americans Act, H.R. 2233. The bill would, if passed, prohibit the government from forcing software and technology companies to create “back doors” – secret means through which government agents can enter supposedly secure information systems to search through private information without being detected by users. These back doors have also been used by criminal hackers to steal private data for years.
The legislation would also ban the federal government from searching through databases it has accumulated for information about U.S. citizens without obtaining a search warrant first.
Has your U.S. Representative supported H.R. 2233? Not unless you are represented by Lofgren, Poe, or Massie.
Why don’t you give a call to your member of Congress, through the switchboard at (202) 224-3121, and ask when you will see his or her name added to the list of co sponsors of the End Warrantless Surveillance of Americans Act?
