Org. position: Nay


"On August 4, 2007, the House passed the Protect America Act (S. 1927) by a vote of 227 to 183. The ACLU opposed this legislation because it allows for massive, untargeted collection of international communications without court order or meaningful oversight by either Congress or the courts. Additionally, it contains virtually no protections for the U.S. end of the phone call or email, leaving decisions about the collection, mining and use of Americans' private communications up to the executive branch."
