Homeland Security or Big Brother?

Homeland Security or Big Brother?


As President Bush fast-tracks his new Department of Homeland Security, American citizens are left wondering what the CIA, FBI, DEA, and INS have been up to.

Do we really need more federal law enforcement? What does Homeland Security mean for what little is left of the Constitution?

Join Stephen B. Presser, Raoul Berger, Professor of Legal History at Northwestern University Law School, and Chronicles’ executive editor, Scott P. Richert, for a candid discussion and debate: “Homeland Security versus the Constitution.”

Professor Presser, the legal affairs editor for Chronicles, is the author of Recapturing the Constitution. He has testified before Congress on such topics as the Flag Protection Amendment, the Child Protection Act and abortion, and the historical background of presidential impeachment provisions. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of America’s top authorities on the Constitution December 12, at 5:30 p.m. at The Rockford Institute, 928 N. Main St.

A reception will follow the panel. Tickets are $5 per person, $1 for high school students and undergraduates. Admission is payable at the door, but seating is limited. Reservations can be made by calling Lili at 815/964-5811.
