Civil Asset Forfeiture

Civil asset forfeiture is one of the most egregious violations of civil and constitutional rights in modern history.  Through this illegal policy, law enforcement agents, both state and federal, are able to steal your property under false pretenses, forcing you to go to court and prove that your property was obtained through legal means.  

This is a clear violation of both your 4th and 5th amendment rights, and is unabashedly immoral and illegal.  

As your congressman, I will introduce legislation to end the federal civil asset forfeiture program within my first year in office.
