You have to remember though, imprisoning US citizens as militant combatants goes back to President Lincoln who was the first president to ignore the rights of the presumed innocent until found guilty. It's the whole reason behind why he was shot!

Doesn't matter what Congress does as Our Dear And Glorious Leader has
started ruling by fiat because "we can't wait". An example is his spate of
"recess" appointments when Congress is NOT in recess. So the passage of

policies only if they give him more power.
