The United States of America has no legal authority to designate *any* domestic entities as “terrorist organizations.”

And although some may claim that domestic designation authority comes from section 802 of the 2001 USA PATRIOT Act, that statute creates a *definition* of “domestic terrorism,” but no process for designating domestic organizations or imparting consequences to such a designation.

Section 802 creates a definition of “domestic terrorism,” but no mechanism for designating domestic terrorist groups or imparting consequences to such a designation.

Serious question, and because I'd be interested in seeing various white supremacist groups designated as such... Why is that? And what would make it unconstitutional to declare such a group a terrorist org? Is it because we don't have a domestic terrorism statute?
