SEC. 1031.(e) Authorities-
Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities, relating to the detention of United States citizens,
lawful resident aliens of the United States or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.
What the hell does that mean?
SEC. 1032.(b)(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS-
The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section
does not extend to citizens of the United States.
No that sounds straight forward.

Thanks for providing the Sec 1032 (b) (1) provision. I feel better about this act, and it will settle once and for all the ridiculous conference of citizens rights to POWs.
