What sort of punishment does your amendment assign to the people who engaged in these unconstitutional acts? If none, why?
Excellent. I hope (1) the DoJ enforces the law when passed, instead of turning a blind eye; and (2) more states assess the Constitutionality of their existing laws, and amend where needed. This is a bipartisan win for freedoms that should be guaranteed to all of us.
Doesn't go far enough. ALL civil forfeiture should be banned, with the possible exceptions of forfeiture after an appropriate conviction and/or putting stuff in escrow until/during trial.
I may not always agree with your positions but I appreciate your willingness to regularly explain your votes and efforts to engage your voters. Also, on this issue I agree with you in lockstep.
I have attended your town halls because of your fight against things like this. You were my favorite congressman. That was until you voted against pre existing coverage and Harvey funding. The list sadly goes on. Thank your for standing up against illegal killing of American citizens. Thank you for understanding the importance of the need for social programs. You understand how the military industrial complex hurts our citizens. This is why I have supported you. I can no longer do so. The freedoms caucus is misguided.
I don't see eye to eye with you often, but this was a move that actually serves your constituents. Thank you.
I agree asset forfeiture as presently practiced is a bad policy, but where is the basis for the claim that it is unconstitutional? And if it is, why has it been practiced since before the American founding (it has roots in admiralty law) and never been successfully challenged with constitutuonal litigation?
Return the "forfeited" assets to the people who had their property taken without due process - with interest! Prosecute the government officials who stole that property under color of authority.
Thank God. This is just insane that people don't see the problem with this, it's blatantly unconstitutional theft! Great job!
CAF still needs to be eliminated entirely unless there is a conviction and forfeited assets were acquired with criminal profits. Great job though!
