The Executive Order.... (1)

adamziegler (1082701) | more than 4 years ago | (#30567478)

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words "except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 [wikisource.org] of that Act" and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.

Men In Black? Secret Police? FBI not enough? (1)

I heard about this on the way to work this morning. Through this executive order INTERPOL agents become completely immune from prosecution in the United States, and that their property cannot be searched. That said, why are INTERPOL agents in this country in the first place? I thought we had the FBI for federal-level policing activities.
