    Only days after clearing Congress, US President Barack Obama signed his name to H.R. 347 on Thursday, officially making it a federal offense to cause a disturbance at certain political events — essentially criminalizing protest in the States.

    I couldn't find the BORDC statement but as I understand the bill if the Secret Service is on scene protecting a government official then standing across street holding a sign protesting against the government would be a felony.

    If my understanding is close to correct then I think that is a serious concern.
