A bill introduced in the New York State Assembly has sparked a fierce backlash for proposing Gov. Cuomo have the power to detain individuals against their will if a medical facility or another supposedly authoritative source deems them a threat to the public’s health.

State Assemblyman N. Nick Perry (D) will refer his bill, A416, to the Assembly’s Health Committee today.

Per Fox News:

Many critics of the bill tied it to austere measures taken by local and state officials with regards to the coronavirus pandemic, although earlier versions of the bill were introduced as far back as the 2015-2016 legislative session.

“[T]his bill was initially introduced to address public health concerns related to the containment of the Ebola virus after it was discovered that Ebola-infected persons had entered the United States,” Perry told Fox News in a statement. “I am an American who understands our Constitution is sacred, and provides us with the right to agree or disagree, and hold different positions on issues that may relate to our civil and constitutional rights.”

“There is no intent, no plan, or provisions in my bill to take away, or violate any rights, or liberties that all Americans are entitled to under our Constitution, either state or federal,” Perry continued.

The bill requires the governor “or his or her delegee” to apply for a court order authorizing a detention within three business days.

Here’s a total load of BS that will poison ANY lawn or garden:
Quote: ““There is no intent, no plan, or provisions in my bill to take away, or violate any rights, or liberties that all Americans are entitled to under our Constitution, either state or federal,”

This bill does exactly ALL of that !

Who pays for this “detention” in a medical facility of his choice?
According to liberals, conservatism is the biggest threat to the world.
