Virginia nullifies detention of U.S. citizens provision of the National Defense Authorization Act

Bill: HB1160 (PDF)

Sponsored by Del. Robert Marshall, and approved by Gov. Bob McDonnell, HB1160 (Acts of Assembly Chapter 792, popularly known as The NDAA Nullification Act) prevents “any agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the military of Virginia from assisting an agency of the armed forces of the United States in the detention of a citizen in violation of the United States Constitution, the Constitution of Virginia, or any Virginia law or regulation.” HB1160 serves to nullify a provision of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act that enables the federal detention of U.S. citizens without due process.”
