The New York legislature has introduced a bill (Assembly A416) to allow authorities to forcibly remove, detain, and isolate anyone the state feels is a “risk to public safety.”
The bill’s first reading, Friday, sent the legislation to the Health Committee in January 6th, the same day Washington D.C. legislators will meet to certify electoral college results and the same day as staged protests across the country.
The bill gives the state authority to remove people
“§ 2120-a. Removal and detention of cases, contacts and carriers who declares a state of health emergency due to an epidemic of any communicable disease. Upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the governor, after consultation with the commissioner, may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the governor or his or her delegee, including, but not limited to the commissioner or the heads of local health departments, may order the removal and/or detention of such as a person or of a group of such persons by issuing a single order, identifying such persons either by name or by a reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained. Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other approximate facility or premises designated by the governor or his or her delegee and complying with subdivision five of this section. A person or group removed or detained by order of the governor or his or her delegee pursuant to subdivision two of this section shall be detained for such period and in such manner as the department may direct in accordance with this section.”
The legislation is broad and gives the governor, health agencies, and police the unilateral ability to detain and then isolate any individual deemed to be a threat by placing the person in a medical institution or otherwise.
Authorities will release the individual posing the threat when the person is no longer positive with COVID-19 or no longer suspected of testing positive OR he agrees to behave in a less risky manner and submits to regular health assessments.
As it turns out, the concentration camp conspiracy theorists may have been onto something all along.
