Judicial Review of Torture
On the Amendment
Senate Roll Call No. 325
109th Congress, 1st Session

Agreed to: 84-14 (see complete tally)
On November 15, 2005, the Senate agreed to the Graham-Levin Amendment (Amendment No. 2524) that would strip detainees imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay of most of their due process protections. The ACLU opposed the Graham-Levin Amendment because, by stripping detainees at Guantanamo Bay of the ability to file habeas petitions and other claims in federal court, it unconstitutionally removed the system of checks and balances for persons seeking protection against the government's use of torture and abuse and other denials of due process. The amendment passed by a vote of 84 to 14 and was attached to the S. 1042k, Defense Department Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006. (Roll Call Vote No. 325)
