House Passes Amendments to Stop DOJ’s Civil Asset Forfeiture Program

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives passed amendments to stop the Department of Justice’s civil asset forfeiture program, which Attorney General Jeff Sessions introduced in July. The amendments received support from those within the House Freedom Caucus and some of the biggest liberals in Congress.

Civil forfeiture remains a controversial issue in America since it’s “a process by which the government can take and sell your property without ever convicting, or even charging, you with a crime.” The procedures are civil, which means defendants do not receive the same protections given to criminal defendants.



This is “legalized” theft by the government supporting 40% of law enforcement budgets. A national disgrace attacking our freedom under the guise of the war against drugs.

One Response to House Passes Amendments to Stop DOJ’s Civil Asset Forfeiture Program

  1. Average Joe says:

    I understand North Carolina state law does not allow this unless there is a conviction. Local law enforcement bypasses the law by working with the Fed who offer an 80% bribe of the stolen loot. To avoid the circumvention of the law why not have our legislature pass a law that demands 100% of the ill gotten gains be turned over to the state treasury which can then refund it to the victims of theft by badge.

    Y’all have a nice day.
