A message from Chris Corning

Dear Friend,

Fairness. Justice. Due process. These are the values that define America.

Last October, Congress and the President brought them under attack by passing the Military Commissions Act (MCA).

If the government puts you in jail, you have a right to know why. And you have a right to challenge your imprisonment in court. The principle is called habeas corpus, and the Framers thought the concept so important they wrote into the body of the Constitution.

The MCA eliminates habeas corpus for certain people detained by the federal government, and it gives the President the power to decide — without review by Congress or the Courts — who is branded an “enemy combatant.”

The ACLU is fighting to repair the damage done by the MCA and stop this and other unacceptable erosions of our freedoms and our Constitution, but they need your help.

Please visit today.

You’ll meet Mr. Habeas Corpus himself, and learn how he disappeared last October, just as Congress passed the MCA.

Most importantly, you’ll learn how you can help find Habeas Corpus and take action to restore America’s Constitutional values.

Please visit today.

Thank you.
