Burns- this is your time, bro.
I know we are in a post 9/11 Gitmo world, but from whence do Christie and Cuomo derive legal authority to quarantine people who basically are no public health threat. My google searches show that the Secretary of HHS can do things under the Commerce Clause, but it would have to be a real emergency, one would think. But in this case, we are detaining and holding people because they might get ill. What are the relevant statutes in NY and NJ give them the authority to detain people for what is basically a health pre-crime?
Is there any case law on this? I’d imagine the ACLU will have a field day with this if not.
