Rand Paul Bill Would Protect Us From Drone Surveillance
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul proposes the Preserving Freedom from Unwanted Surveillance Act.
“Like other tools used to collect information in law enforcement, in order to use drones a warrant needs to be issued,” Paul said Tuesday. “Americans going about their everyday lives should not be treated like criminals or terrorists and have their rights infringed upon by military tactics.”
The bill, S. 3287, would require the government to obtain a warrant to use drones with the exception of patrolling national borders, when drones are needed to prevent “imminent danger to life” or when there are risks of a terrorist attack.
