An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Who are the "Militarized Federal Agents?"

133 so far! Let’s get to 250 signers!

In the past week, news from Oregon about "militarized federal agents" arresting protesters in unmarked cars has been reported to the AP and other outlets. What these news outlets are unable to answer is just who these federal agents are. What agency are they with? To whom do they report? What laws outline the limits of their authority? It is a matter of the utmost urgency for these questions to be asked, and if not answered, then investigated immediately. No agency operating within American borders, acting upon American citizens, should be imbued with this level of impunity and secrecy. The public is entitled to know who these enforcers in the street are, who they're working for, and to whom they report. Please demand transparency from the White House regarding these agents, who wear no insignia, who travel in unmarked cars, who have been described as "militarized" or as a "paramilitary force." And if the White House cannot answer quickly and forthrightly, please draft and/or support legislature to abolish this anonymous "federal" force.
