Prevent warrantless searches of our bank accounts
This petition made change with 39 supporters!
On September 26th the US House approved HR 6729, “Empowering Financial Institutions to Fight Human Trafficking Act”. Using the excuse of fighting human trafficking, this bill would allow warrantless searches of our bank accounts. This bill is an extension of FOSTA which is already leading to an increase in attacks on sex workers.
Law enforcement already has the means to track financial information related to crime without violating our due process protections. If HR 6729 passes, law-abiding citizens will have virtually no recourse when they are wrongly targeted.
The bill is now before the Senate’s Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs committee. Senator Warren is on that committee. Either of Massachusetts' Senators, Warren or Markey, could halt this bill by placing a hold on it. We ask that they do so to defend our 4th Amendment right to be free of warrantless searches.
