Rep. Luna Votes NO on FISA Reauthorization to Defend American’s Privacy Rights

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Anna Paulina Luna (FL-13) released the following statement after voting ‘no’ on the rule that would allow for the reauthorization of FISA 702:

“As a member of Congress, it is my duty to uphold the constitutional rights of the American people. Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) has been utilized to infringe on our privacy rights to conduct warrantless searches on Americans. I am proud to have joined 18 of my colleagues in voting against the irresponsible extension of this program. We saw how FISA was misused in the Russiagate “investigation” to spy on President Trump’s campaign in 2016.

Any reauthorization of FISA must require warrants for accessing Americans’ data. This would prevent intelligence agencies from exploiting backdoor loopholes. We must ensure that our intelligence operations respect the fundamental principles of due process and privacy. The message is clear: to access an American’s data, you must GET A WARRANT!”
