INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 21, 2013) – The Indiana Senate passed a bill that would block any attempts to detain people on Indiana soil without due process Thursday afternoon.

The Prohibition on Aiding the Enforcement of Unconstitutional Laws Act (SB400) passed 31-17. All but one Senate Democrat reportedly voted against the bill, with six Republicans joining the dissent.

If the bill becomes law, a “state actor may not investigate, prosecute, or detain any person lawfully in Indiana under a state or federal law that the state actor knows or reasonably should know deprives a person of life, liberty, or property without a fair proceeding in violation of the Due Process Clause of the United States Constitution or the Due Course of Law Clause of the Constitution of the State of Indiana.”
