Are you considered a citizen or a person in an America court of law? The play book is how they get you and even then The Supreme court can rule on it and it's the law of the land!

Feinstein-Lee NDAA Amendment Passes, But Is It Enough?

Therein lies the rub. In its guarding of civil liberties, nowhere does the Constitution restrict those protections to "citizens." As Anders accurately records, "persons" - all persons - are by their very nature afforded the same rights as individuals, regardless of nationality.

Finally, the Feinstein-Lee Amendment fails to address the most invasive aspect of the mortal malady that is the NDAA - the placement of the American military at the disposal of the president for the apprehension, arrest, and detention of those suspected of posing a danger to the homeland (whether inside or outside the borders of the United States and whether the suspect be a citizen or foreigner). Giving the president that power is nothing less than a de facto legislative repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, the law forbidding the use of the military in domestic law enforcement.
