Andy has repeatedly warned about Ashcroft using his powers (under the USA PATRIOT Act, etc.) to harass "law-abiding citizens."
I think everyone detained by Ashcroft since 9/11 have been NOT law-abiding and NOT citizens (of the U.S. anyway). And that is where the protests seem to be coming from.
Here is a good example: a lawsuit just filed against Ashcroft's policies which openly declares that it is filed on behalf of non-U.S. citizens.
The plaintiffs claim they are "law-abiding people," but in fact, only people without proper visas were detained.
