There are many issue with the Patriot Act. Yes it has prevented many attacks on us from terrorists, but would you really want to give up so much freedom in order to have better control of terrorists.

The bill was passed and signed into law by President Bush on October 26, 2001. The Patriot Act was a lot like the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001. Much of the act was to help put a stop to the many terrorist attacks, but with in making the act there were a lot of changes to the over fifteen important amendments. There was a lack of debate on part of the house and senate covering this act.
Russ Feingold, the one and only senator to oppose the act, was concerned that the Act would effect the immigrants civil liberties. Many people feel that act will in fact effect many of our civil liberties as Americans.
