ACSOL President Chance Oberstein to Discuss Travel Law Updates

ACSOL President Chance Oberstein will discuss travel law updates on September 17 at 11 a.m. (Pacific) during this year’s ACSOL annual conference.  Mr. Oberstein’s presentation will address both domestic and overseas travel.

“Registrants are traveling both domestically and internationally during the pandemic for both personal and business reasons,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.  “Not only must they be careful of COVID-19 restrictions, they must also pay attention to the International Megan’s Law and state laws.”

Paul Rigney, who heads the Registrant Travel Action Group (RTAG), will join Mr. Oberstein in this presentation.  RTAG offers a wide range of information to registrants online, including whether countries have allowed or denied access to registrants.  That website can be reached at www.registranttag.org.

In order to view this presentation, it is necessary to sign up for ACSOL’s virtual conference that will take place on September 17 and September 18.  Below is a link to use for that purpose.  The cost of attending the two-day conference is $25.  Scholarships are available for those who are unable to pay that amount.

IML,
Another miscalculated foreign policy. One where gov takes it upon themselves to protect foreign nationals from Americans, and on their own soil to boot! Why does America feel the need to advertise the worst of the flock on a world wide scale? In my experience, I have seen many “Beware of Dog” signs, but never does the warning include a picture of the dog. I believe the key to understanding why America has chosen to implement IML rests somewhere other than D.C.

Do you figure ISIS-K, The Taliban, or Al Qaeda will do the same for us? The Russians did their best with the Tsarnaev Brothers, but that warning fell on deaf ears,

@Tim: I suspect it’s the same reason East Germany built that wall in Berlin. GDR society was a surveillance society, and despite widely acknowledged massive violations of human rights no one ever held the Stasi accountable. Former members even have annual meet-ups to this day. The West has overlooked their evils and I’m afraid are importing their methods.

To control flow, but this time it’s not people doing the flowing, it is the information. I may not reasonably argue that sometimes those humans fleeing from either side were carrying important information! The quantum difference being the light’s speed involved in the flow. No one has bothered to note administrative restraint imposed upon cyber related acts (internet behaviors et.al.) is quantitative loss of the peoples constitutional liberty. Meanwhile, other forces are focused on the qualitative functions of the use of the machine database as a prophylactic ” sex offender registries.” Unfortunately the machine infrastructure makes a poor crime condom indeed, especially with respect to the general welfare. Far more crime has been enabled than disabled by the vastly unregulated advent of the internet.

IML must be abolished just like slavery was.

If they did suspend the travel notice the host nation could always utilize all state database registry and it is free. IML doesn’t suffer the passivity hurdle as did in SOR database did in contemplating of DOE03. Clearly, Project Angel Watch it a proactive approach to abridging of rights and not passive as the gov use of the database was. This raises the governments bar for proof of manifest intent in the prospective use of the regime. No rancher I know advertises the worst of his herd, until it actually gets out. Nor does the same rancher preemptively go to all of his neighbors and say, “I have the meanest breast of and Angus bull in my pasture. If he gets out you better watch the hell out” And then claim “He’s not dangerous.”

Unless I’m remembering wrong: Wasn’t IML voted in under some sort of emergency procedure in Congress which doesn’t require a quorum and/or hearings, etc? If this was the case, then why can’t it be fought on the basis of “What emergency”????????? How the hell is this an emergency??? What proven connection is there between registrants and overseas child abuse?

It wasn’t done under any sort of emergency. It was done via Unanimous Consent, which means nobody present had anything to say for or against it, so it passes without having to have recorded votes. It’s the total BS way to pass legislation without getting anyone’s fingerprints on it.

All votes are recorded or at least they’re supposed to be. Keeping congressional records is the responsibility of the clerks in both houses and end up in the legislative reference bureau. Depending on the state you reside in, the name or the title of the specific agency may vary. Some of the information is available on.gov.

Finding the exact vote is time consuming, even online but these agents will assist citizens upon request. It is best to use an ACT or a Title and date\year to begin the query. You can find the “sponsorship” of a bill to find out precisely who ” brought it to the floor. ” Committee and Sub committee minutes and votes are another path.

You refer to the term “regular congressional order.”
Or regular order for short. Congress does not have many emergency powers, except in succession. Congress can and has often granted emergency power to the Administrative by statutes creating agency w\ specified powers and limited jurisdiction, which in operation answers directly to the current head of state. As FEMA on the federal level.

Here is a good piece on regular order and congressional bills. It’s a .PDF

“Under Suspension of the Rules,” Voice vote. At night. We don’t even know for sure who, or how many, voted for it. This is the kind of shit that Congress now routinely gets away with.

“’Under Suspension of the Rules,’ Voice vote. At night. We don’t even know for sure who, or how many, voted for it. This is the kind of shit that Congress now routinely gets away with.”

How the f**k can this even be considered part of any democratic process?????

I recall Smith v Doe, 2003 citing that a person had to go to the local PD to get access to a registrant’s information. The IML takes that information and disseminates it to the world on your passport. Using the 2003 decision, we should be able to point out that the IML on top of our current registration rule is an added burden.

Since we’ve seen a few states already won cases showing the newer laws added on top of the older registrants is punishment, then why can’t it be applied similarly with the IML? It should be easier because it’s a federal law for the IML and we have a federal law in Smith v Doe, 2003 to compare and contrast with easily.

IMO, compelled unwanted speech is the weighted issue with the best chance. There is also the jurisdictional based comp!aint. Either states have supervisory jurisdiction upon registrants or the federal has jurisdiction, but not both. Currently it is both jurisdictions demanding information. IML cannot be deemed a passive gov action. But hey, I’m an amature.

IML isn’t going anywhere anytime soon all we can hope for is sometime in the near future that certain tier 3 offenders can be removed from the registry after 30 years.
People forced to register aren’t allowed to leave the country, it’s not impossible but the Federal government has made it extremely hard.
Me personally if I made it to one of those Non-extradition countries I wouldn’t even come back to America.
Every time i hear about border patrol capturing another sex offender trying to re-enter the United States after being deported just blows my mind, why would they go through all that to get back to Megan’s Law and CDC death camps, I know Mexico ain’t the best place to live but daam nothing can be worse then being on Megan’s law website in America

Good luck

I hope we can use researched science on the tiers, which was conducted by Dr. Karl Hanson, the same doctor that many registration operation laws use for Static-99. Dr. Hanson recommended that 17 years of supervision is the max term. Throwing arbitrary terms like 10 years, 20 years, and 30 years disregards that human life is quite short and that redemption requires servitude beyond one’s stated terms of paying their debt to humanity.

I missed signing up for this by about an hour and a half it looks like. Any chance there will be a recording we can pay to hear?
