Question description

Recent Federal Acts and Social Justice

The Patriot Act and the Homeland Security Act of the 21st Century form the foundation of the United States’ domestic response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Many legal and political voices have advocated that these acts have resulted in a reduction in the rights of citizens and a loss of civil liberties. Many other legal and political voices argue that in this “new world of terror” we must have more effective ways of preventing terror attacks.

With these differing perspectives in mind and after watching the required ABC Nightly News video segments, construct a paper that critically evaluates whether or not the Patriot Act and the Homeland Security Act unjustly and unreasonably inhibit individual rights, be sure to support your evaluation by addressing the US Constitution Bill of Rights and explain how they impact notions of social justice in the United States. 

The paper must be two to three pages in length, excluding title and reference pages, and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources other than the textbook to support your claims
