Sotto stressed that these 45 legislators who are mostly members of the  Democratic party are most probably “misinformed” by critics of the Anti-Terrorism Act which may have led to their negative impressions of the law.

“They’re misinformed. Why don’t they take a look at their laws? Namimintas sila sa anti-terror law natin samantalang ‘yung bansa nila mas mahigpit kesa sa anti-terror law natin. Bakit sila nakikialam,” said Sotto.      
U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Illinois) and 44 others recently wrote a letter to Philippine Ambassador to Washington D.C. Jose “Babes” Romualdez which urged the Philippine Congress to immediately repeal the Anti-Terror Act.

Schakowsky said in her letter the the Anti-Terror Law “is overbroad” and has raised concernd that “it’s already being used to stifle peaceful dissent and targets civil society, including human and labor rights groups in the Philippines.”
The senate president has time and time again explained that they have included in the law safeguards as against potential abuse.
Currently the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020’s constitutionality has been already questioned before the Supreme Court.
“Hindi naiimpluwensyahan ang Supreme Court nang mga ganyan. Hindi nai-intimidate ang Supreme Court nang mga ganyan,” Sotto.
