This is viewer supported news

Democracy Now! speaks with prolific author, journalist, Village Voice columnist and longtime civil liberties commentator Nat Hentoff about the controversial USA Patriot Act.

The deadline for complying with some major provisions of the USA Patriot Act has arrived including requiring banks and other financial institutions to gather more detailed information on their clients to prove their identities and make sure they’re not on any watch list.

Passed two months after the Sept. 11 attacks, the law aims to stem money laundering and so-called terrorist financing.

Consumers and businesses can expect to dole out more private data, especially if they aren’t citizens or U.S. based.

  • Nat Hentoff, prolific author, journalist and weekly columnist in the Village Voice. He is the author of the new book The War on the Bill of Rights and the Gathering Resistance.
