Dear Editor:
The Immigration Daily's Dec. 9th title article, makes a well-taken point, but mistakenly assumes that the Secret Service only recently gained blanket arrest power. The Secret Service are allowed to detain a person for being in the same room as a protected person. They can hold a person in custody essentially indefinitely, or at least until a writ of mandamus issues. They are permitted to do so long as it is reasonably related to protecting their charge. This was old law back when I was in law school, though it came as a shock to most of us, and was even in the news a few times during the Clinton administration and added grist to the mill of the black helicopters crowd.
