Bush considers immigrants to be terrorists

This man is dangerous. This law must be repealed, and Bush must be impeached. I cannot believe what I am reading ...

From MyWay News:
US: Immigrants may be held indefinitely
By Matt Apuzzo

WASHINGTON (AP) - Immigrants arrested in the United States may be held indefinitely on suspicion of terrorism and may not challenge their imprisonment in civilian courts, the Bush administration said Monday, opening a new legal front in the fight over the rights of detainees.

In court documents filed with the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., the Justice Department said a new anti-terrorism law being used to hold detainees in Guantanamo Bay also applies to foreigners captured and held in the United States.

Ali Saleh Kahlah Al-Marri, a citizen of Qatar, was arrested in 2001 while studying in the United States. He has been labeled an "enemy combatant," a designation that, under a law signed last month, strips foreigners of the right to challenge their detention in federal courts.

My God ...

Bush considers a group of over 12 million people living here, in America, to be "enemy combatants"? This is madness. Sheer madness.
