(NaturalNews) Following in the footsteps of liberty-minded lawmakers in Texas, some Michigan lawmakers are now considering making it a misdemeanor offense for US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents to "conduct an intrusive, personal search on citizens without reasonable cause." The proposal, which really just reaffirms what the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution already states, represents the second attempt by a US state to restrain the TSA from illegally groping and molesting innocent travelers without just cause.

Rep. Tom McMillin (R-Rochester Hills) introduced the legislation in his state following Rep. David Simpson's (R-Longview) introduction of anti-groping legislation in Texas. If passed, Rep. McMillin's bill will punish TSA violators with up to 93 days in jail, a $500 fine, or both, for violating its provisions, which include "intentionally touch[ing] the clothed or unclothed breast, genitalia, buttocks or anus of [travelers] except upon reasonable cause to believe that the individual may be concealing an item that is prohibited on that public property or on that mode of public transportation."

Some detractors of the legislation claim that it attempts to unlawfully "preempt federal rules," but this is not the case when "federal rules" clearly violate the US Constitution. In this case, the TSA's egregious policies and offensive treatment against innocent travelers are wholly preempting constitutional rules, which are the supreme law of the land, and individual states actually have a duty to put a stop to this injustice by passing such laws for the protection of their citizens.

"The federal government is not God," said McMillin in a recent statement. "It doesn't get to decide what it can do to our citizens. The is one law that needs to be in place."

McMillin's statements apply not only to TSA abuses, but also to countless other federal policies that are in clear violation of the US Constitution, including both Obamacare and the federal income tax. The Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution clearly states that powers not explicitly granted to the federal government within its provisions are reserved to the individual states and the people of those states.
