7. Right to Due Process
Along with the right to a fair trial, due process is a crucial part of our legal process. Unfortunately, that process has been routinely assaulted after 9/11. Both President Bush and President Obama have contributed to this.
The Bush administration was infamous for their abuses of due process. With the National Defense Authorization Act, the Obama administration decided to continue his legacy. The government can indefinitely detain Americans. Often the state won’t tell them their charges. Unfortunately, this is the world we must face now.
