It is the calm before the storm. We have filed our final document in support of a Motion for Preliminary Injunction and we are awaiting an opportunity to explain in court why the federal government should not add “conspicuous unique identifiers” to the passports of American citizens and to notify foreign governments that American citizens are coming to visit.
It is perfectly obvious to many that the federal government should not brand its citizens by adding a “Scarlet Letter” to their passports. Even though the International Megan’s Law authorizes them to do so. Because doing so falsely identifies those citizens as people who have engaged in, or are likely to engage in, child sex trafficking or child sex tourism.
We must explain in court that the federal government has never in the history of this country added any type of identifier to the passports of American citizens. And we must explain that the only countries that have added such identifiers were Nazi Germany and Communist Russia.
It is also perfectly obvious to many that the federal government should not notify foreign governments that American citizens – even citizens declared to be “rehabilitated” and removed from their state registry — are coming to visit. Because very few, if any, of these citizens have ever engaged in, or will engage in, child sex trafficking or child sex tourism.
Why must we appear on March 30 to state the obvious? Because the U.S. Congress and the U.S. President have struck a crushing blow to the U.S. Constitution by eliminating the protections of that document to hundreds of thousands of its citizens.
Join us on March 30 to state the obvious.
