No man should lose his liberty or be deprived of his liberty without a judicial trial in accordance with the accepted rules of evidence and procedure. The powers which are going to be assumed by the executive, which means substitution of executive for judiciary, such powers are likely to be abused, and in the past we have instances where such powers have been abused. There is no precedent or parallel that I know of in any civilized country where you have laws of this character enacted. It imperils the liberty of the subject and fundamental liberties of a citizen.
