Associated Press Overview of Changes to Legal Rights:

* FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION: Government may monitor religious and political
institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror
investigation.

* FREEDOM OF INFORMATION: Government has closed once-public immigration

hearings, has secretly detained hundreds of people without charges, and
has encouraged bureaucrats to resist public records requests.

* FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Government may prosecute librarians or keepers of

any other records if they tell anyone that the government subpoenaed
information related to a terror investigation.

* RIGHT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION: Government may monitor federal prison

jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients, and deny lawyers
to Americans accused of crimes.

* FREEDOM FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES: Government may search and seize

Americans' papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror
investigation.

* RIGHT TO A SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL: Government may jail Americans

indefinitely without a trial.

* RIGHT TO LIBERTY: Americans may be jailed without being charged or

being able to confront witnesses against them.
