The law has not been enacted. If it is, there is some hope for having it declared unconstitutional.

Yet the US Government has already seized a number of domains a week or so ago without this law being on the books yet or any kind of due process.

It has had due process...the exact same due process that other crimes go through. The justice department went to the courts with what evidence they had, got a judge to sign off on a seizure warrant, and they seized it. If someone failed to pay their taxes, the IRS potentially goes through basically the same process to reposes property. A drug dealer with a meth lab doesn't get a 30 day advance notice to appear in court to appeal a raid where his lab gets confiscated.
