The Habeas Corpus Restoration Act of 2007 is a bill introduced by U.S. Senators Arlen Specter and Patrick Leahy, which gives the right of habeas corpus to foreign nationals detained in Guantanamo Bay and those living inside the United States which are declared enemy combatants- and thous forcing the United States to prosecute each combatant.[1] Opponents argue that foreign enemy combatants do not have constitutional rights.[2] Congressman Jerrold Nadler and Congresswoman Jane Harman introduced the House version of the bill (HR 1416).
