In a response to President Donald Trump’s criticism of lawmakers who dislike civil asset forfeiture, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has promised to introduce a bill to end it.

Taking to his Facebook page, Amash said this:

President Trump today endorsed stealing property from law-abiding Americans who haven’t been charged with—let alone convicted of—any crime. He also said, “We’ll destroy his career,” about a conservative Texas state senator who opposes this unconstitutional civil asset forfeiture.

My staff and I will work to introduce a bill to end civil asset forfeiture. I always will stand up for limited government, economic freedom, and individual liberty. And I always will keep my oath to support and defend the Constitution.

Amash sourced Trump’s “endorse[ment] of stealing property from law-abiding Americans,” to an article from Reuters
