Lisa Rosenberg Appears On the Bill Press Show to Discuss the Danger of FISA 702, if it’s not Reformed

Open The Government’s Executive Director Lisa Rosenberg condemned today’s vote (233-183) to reauthorize and expand Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), and views it as a direct assault on Americans’ Fourth Amendment protections and privacy rights. “This is an Orwellian step towards a permanent surveillance state and all Americans should be deeply concerned,” said Open The Government Executive Director Lisa Rosenberg. “In its current form, Section 702 is a bait and switch, where we are told it is meant to only track foreign threats, but has been secretly turned into a warrantless domestic dragnet.”
