In the second hour, Colorado State Representative Jared Wright spoke about his related work on anti-NDAA legislation. The NDAA has the potential to be very dangerous to the constitutional fabric of the country, Wright warned. For those who may not yet fully understand the threat of indefinite detention posed by this law, Wright echoed Hasegawa in noting that it has already happened and was upheld by the Supreme Court. Not only were the rights of 120,000 Japanese Americans suspended 70 years ago but several thousand U.S citizens of German and Italian descent as well, he explained. Wright credited our present age of 'war frenzy' for motivating many politicians, including President Obama, to support the NDAA. He suggested that unconstitutional arrests are already happening under the law and cautioned that anyone at anytime could be accused of a so-called 'belligerent' act against the country and arrested too.
