What is due process

What is Due Process?

In the United States, due process refers to a set of established legal principles, derived from the Constitution, that seek to protect the rights of citizens.


Due process clause

Due Process Clause

The fifth amendment provides that “no person…(shall) be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.


Due process of the law

  • No State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. (Fourteenth Amendment)

  • Guarantees U.S Citizens the equality and fairness of the law regardless of the crime


Goals of due process

Goals Of Due Process

  • To produce, through the use of fair procedures, more accurate results; to prevent the wrongful deprivation of interests

  • To make people feel that the government has treated them fairly by listening to their position

Was Justice Served?

On September 30, 2011, these amendments were broken when President Obama approved a U.S. drone strike, which killed two American-born and -raised Muslim clerics, Anwar al-Awlaki (40 yrs.) and his son Samir Khan (16 yrs.) in Yemen.  


Due process of the law

National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

In 2012 President Obama signed the NDAA Act, Obama is the first ever president to claim the legal authority to order an American citizen killed without judicial involvement, real oversight or public accountability

American citizens can be held indefinitely as a terrorist without formal charges and then sentenced to death

Detainee Rights

In Hamdan v. Rumsfeld (2006), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Guantanamo Bay detainees are protected by the Geneva Conventions, and struck down a Bush administration plan that called for the remaining detainees to be tried in top-secret tribunals. Last year, Congress passed the Military Commissions Act providing a due process system for Guantanamo detainees. The Pentagon has indicated that fewer than 100 prisoners will be tried under the new system. It is not yet clear whether detainees not tried under the Military Commissions Act will be immediately released or further detained indefinitely without trial, but the Hamdan precedent and public opinion make the latter option unlikely.
