Yeah not only that, but one of his 2008 campaign promises was to actually get rid of it. Tbh I sorta forget what's within the Patriot act. But I remember that it rung in Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well as Homeland Security. They serve a function, but their directive has become corrupted with xenophobia deeply engrained within our culture. I don't necessarily think they need rid of, but the concentration camps on the border do.
