Alright, after a little time off its time to get back to the Constitution. Picking up where we left off, Section 9.
The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.
Now I’m not completely sure, but I think this deals with immigration and transporting slaves to America. It reads like this in plain speak;
‘The Migration or Importation of such persons as any of the States(capitalized because they’re sovereign) think is right to let in, cannot be stopped by Congress before 1808, but they can levy a import tax of 10$ a person.’
That’s how I read that one, now onto Habeas Corpus.
The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.
A lot of people don’t know the definition of Habeas Corpus so here you go…
ha·be·as cor·pus [hey-bee-uhs kawr-puhs]
Noun Lawa writ requiring a person to be brought before a judge or court, especially for investigation of a restraint of the person’s liberty, used as a protection against illegal imprisonment.
