NY bill to arrest/ jail mere ‘SUSPECTED threats to public health – like the unvaxxed- reappears in regulation due to pass Feb 14.
NY Gulag Governor sneaking through a regulation giving her the power to arrest and indefinitely detain people as suspected health threats
New York Governor Kathy Hochul is trying to give herself sweeping new powers with a recently proposed regulation that would allow her to arrest anybody “possibly having a particular disease or condition” and imprison them without trial or due process in Covid camps or other settings for as long as public health officials think detainment is necessary.
Hochul’s regulation completely bypasses the legislature, including public debate and voting by elected representatives. A similar proposed law (Assembly Bill A416) was withdrawn by the bill’s sponsor after receiving scathing attention in the global media last month.
Hochul is determined to give herself this power whether the legislature agrees or not. The regulation comes into effect after a public comment period ending February 14. See the proposed regulation here: https://regs.health.ny.gov/sites/default/files/proposed-regulations/Investigation%20of%20Communicable%20Disease%3B%20Isolation%20and%20Quarantine.pdf
You need to take action now to stop this regulation now!
