Coalition Letter Opposing Section 702 Reforms in the USA Liberty Act of 2017 (October 2017)

The government uses the backdoor search loophole to conduct warrantless searches for the information of individuals who are not targets of Section 702, including U.S. citizens and residents. Unfortunately, the Section 702 reform bill introduced last week, the USA Liberty Act [H.R. 3989], fails to address many of the concerns raised in our letter. We cannot support the USA Liberty Act at this stage without further changes to strengthen the warrant requirement for searching databases containing Section 702 information.
