Congressman Bobby Rush (D-IL) introduced H.R.6666: COVID19 Testing, Reaching, Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act
on May 1st, 2020.
The TRACE act is nothing but an explicit authorization for the ‘surveillance state’. Like the PATRIOT Act, this act is a totalitarian attack on every American’s rights of freedom, security, and privacy, except it, is, heinously, much higher in magnitude. The dangerous act sets the hideous structure of unprecedented control on ‘We the People’. This act, also, violates the Fourth Amendment of our Constitution as well as the First, Fifth, Eighth, and Ninth Amendments of the Bill of Rights. It legalizes harassing and forcing the people to receive medical intervention.
Particularly, this bill:
I strongly condemn and reject this bill, and call on the people to reject it and stand for their rights against this Orwellian attempt.
It is unimaginable to me that someday I would need to write and explain my position on such a straight-forward ‘spying’ bill.
Green for US Senate
