ACLU: Congress Just Temporarily Extended the Government’s Spying Powers



Congress Just Temporarily Extended the Government’s Spying Powers

The NSA has repeatedly used these powers to spy on Americans. It’s past time Congress reformed them.

Congress today temporarily extended the NSA’s spying powers that time and again have been used to violate our rights. Disturbingly, this three-month extension was snuck into a broader funding bill, forcing members of Congress to choose between extending this program and causing a government shutdown. The extension is an unnecessary lifeline to spying programs that are plagued with compliance violations, have no proven intelligence value, and violate our rights.
