A trio of New Yorkers are asking a federal court to stop the government from testing an alert system that they say would allow President Trump or his successors in the White House to turn people’s cellphones into a loudspeaker for the administration’s propaganda.
The complaint filed last week in Manhattan federal court seeks to halt the testing planned for Wednesday because it violates people’s constitutional rights by allowing the government to seize their electronic devices and distribute messages that could contain “disinformation, subjective opinions and biased characterizations.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“The Presidential Alert system, which is compulsory and cannot be opted out of, violates these rights because it is tantamount to hijacking private property for the purpose of planting a Government-controlled loudspeaker in the home and on the person of every American,” the complaint filed last Wednesday by Jason Nicholas, Kristine Rakowsky and Liane Nikitovich says.
