Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (R) signed bill SB0094 into law yesterday. The bill nullifies Section 1021 of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which is the indefinite detention clause.

Ben Swann spoke with SB0094 sponsor Michigan Senator Rick Jones (R), who said:

Historically Michigan first asserted 10th Amendment rights in 1855 when we passed a law to block the Fugitive Slave Act. I thought of this great history as I pushed the bill to nullify the NDAA. No US citizen should have to fear being thrown into jail or prison without charges. I got support from both sides of the political spectrum. With the Governor’s signature, Michigan states no local police, state police, sheriff or Michigan National Guard will assist the feds with holding a US citizen without Habeas Corpus.The bill reads as follows:

AN ACT to prohibit any agency of this state, any political subdivision of this state, any employee of any agency of this state or any political subdivision of this state, or any member of the Michigan national guard from assisting an agency of the armed forces of the United States in the investigation, prosecution, or detainment of any citizen of the United States under certain circumstances.

The People of the State of Michigan enact:

Sec. 1. (1) Subject to subsection (2), notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, no agency of this state, no political subdivision of this state, no employee of an agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state acting in his or her official capacity, and no member of the Michigan national guard on active state service shall aid an agency of the armed forces of the United States in any investigation, prosecution, or detention of any person pursuant to section 1021 of the national defense authorization act for fiscal year 2012, if such aid would place that state agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the Michigan national guard in violation of the United States constitution, the state constitution of 1963, or any law of this state.
(2) Subsection (1) does not apply to participation by state or local law enforcement or the Michigan national guard in a joint task force, partnership, or other similar cooperative agreement with federal law enforcement if that joint task force, partnership, or similar cooperative agreement is not for the purpose of investigating, prosecuting, or detaining any person pursuant to section 1021 of the national defense authorization act for fiscal year 2012.

Enacting section 1. This act takes effect upon the expiration of 90 days after the date it is enacted into law.Mike Maharrey of the Tenth Amendment Center said the signing of the bill is a great first step:

This is a great step forward in protecting the basic due process rights of people in Michigan and gives activists there something to build on. Moving forward, I would love to see the Michigan legislature expand the policy in two ways. First, I would like to see it include protection for all people, not just U.S. citizens. After all, every person has a right to basic due process, no matter who they are or where they are from. Second, I would like to see a bill expanding the ban on cooperation to any future federal law or regulation that purports to allow indefinite detention. No federal act can justify kidnapping. None.

  1. Very cool, will copy and forward this info to my state senator in Missouri if OK with Lily Dane. Also will follow up with phone calls frequently.

  2. That is a great start, except they limited it to the armed forces of the United States. That means that they can still help the DHS, FBI, CIA, NSA, and numerous other alphabet agencies to detain U.S. Citizens illegally.

  3. Follow up note:

    It also does not prevent them from assisting foreign military, either. Anyone with any sense that has been following things closely pretty much knows that when they start rounding up people, the U.S. Armed Forces are not who they will be using to do it.

    So, this law is pretty much useless. It’s a “Feel Good” and “Look what we did” law.

  4. No one even wonder why Rick Snyder flew over to Israel for nine-day trade mission back in June 2013 ..
    Like i said last Year There is a reason there was 175 emergency finical mangers trained in Detroit . Now that the courts made it legal for pension funds to be taken this litmus is in play to the rest of the country and Canada is even worse .,, This will play out like Greece on in a city by city for mat and with heavy force .

  5. Yes Peak, hubby, with a little over 5 yrs. to retire, recently got a letter saying that 2 yrs. before he retires they will review the pension fund. Right now they work on 89 (yrs. of service plus age) but might increase that number. Decision now is to cash out & run, or stay a couple more. We all know what their decision will be, and deep down he knows what his is too. A game changer. I cook, he’s a millwright. Not like our skills are useless elsewhere. But we have a teenager in the equation so decisions need to be right for everyone. I’m ready, my other loved ones need to summon the courage to do what needs to be done. Rae kicked the ball away from the working people when he allowed them to borrow from private pension funds. Felt the same way when I read about Detroit. we’re in Ontario Canada. I’m 100% with you on this. better have a plan, they’re comin’ to get you whether they nullify it or not, and I don’t care which side of the imaginary line you live on. No I’m not a pessimist. I plan on winning.
