Federal government’s broad powers to act for public safety and national security are limited by the First Amendment and Fourth Amendment. The 9/11 attack have open the doors on warrantless surveillance programs. The mass collection of sensitive information has been challenged by many as an invasion of privacy. Snowden’s release of sensitive information has brought to light the true challenges between government surveillance and privacy. There is a true need to balance government surveillance and privacy in order to protect America. Lawmakers are starting to recognize this with the introduction of new laws to tackle and balance privacy with government surveillance. These improved laws must be introduced on a national level.

Privacy today faces growing threats from a growing surveillance apparatus that is often justified in the name of national security..but it's not ok at all
