WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) today introduced legislation to prohibit drone killings of U.S. citizens on U.S. soil if they do not represent an imminent threat.
“Our Constitution restrains government power,” Cruz said. “The federal government may not use drones to kill U.S. citizens on U.S. soil if they do not represent an imminent threat. The Commander in Chief does, of course, have the power to protect Americans from imminent attack, and nothing in this legislation interferes with that power.”
Key bill text:
Exactly. More Holder double-speak. I'm certain they will call any US citizen who speaks out against the Gov't or refuses to comply with a firearms confiscation order a 'combatant'.
And what about using the drones for surveillance against US citizens? His statement is worthless.
