9 Ways That The Government Is Restricting Freedom In America


You don’t always have the right to access government information.

The first amendment and the Freedom of Information Act also allows citizens the right to access government information. However, the US Department of Justice actively encourages the limitation or restriction of these documents to citizens under a directive. A rather common example is of immigration hearings that the government holds behind closed doors, once readily available to the public. Hundreds of people have been deported in secret as a result of this. The directive further limits accessibility to other trials and information in this same way.
