- Congress Quietly Passed a Bill Allowing Warrantless Searches of Homes in 3 States as Media Stays Silent

The bill states “In performing its duties, the Commission, through its Board or designated employees or agents, may: Enter upon the WMATA Rail System and, upon reasonable notice and a finding by the chief executive officer that a need exists, upon any lands, waters, and premises adjacent to the WMATA Rail System, including, without limitation, property owned or occupied by the federal government, for the purpose of making inspections, investigations, examinations, and testing as the Commission may deem necessary to carry out the purposes of this MSC Compact, and such entry shall not be deemed a trespass.”
A BILL THAT WILL ALLOW HOMES TO BE SEARCHED WITHOUT A WARRANT WAS PASSED WITH OVERWHELMING SUPPORT BY THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS, AND SIGNED INTO LAW BY PRESIDENT TRUMP—AND IT HAPPENED WITH NO MEDIA COVERAGE AND VERY LITTLE FANFARE.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The Swamp never sleeps, and today’s story is proof of that. Congress, who can’t seem to overturn Obamacare, is able to pass with lightning speed and stealth a bill that allows warrantless search and seizure in homes located in Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland. Sadly, President Trump signed this bill into law after its passage in Congress in absolute violation of the Fourth Amendment of our Constitution. Sadly, I do not think Trump is aware of the full implications of this bill now law, but that’s no excuse. Sad day for America.
On the surface, House Joint Resolution 76 looks harmless. The title of the bill claims that its purpose is “Granting the consent and approval of Congress for the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia to enter into a compact relating to the establishment of the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission.”
