AG Garland: ‘I Can’t Imagine Any Circumstance in Which the PATRIOT Act Would Be Used in the Circumstances of Parents Complaining About Their Children’
GARLAND: "And I want to be clear, the Justice Department supports and defends the First Amendment right of parents to complain as vociferously as they wish about the education of their children, about the curriculum taught in the schools. That is not what the memorandum is about at all. Nor does it use the words 'domestic terrorism' or 'Patriot Act.' Like you, I can’t imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor can I imagine the circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism."
