VICTORY! Texas Outlaws Sharia Law

on

Governor Greg Abbott signed into law Texas House Bill 45, also known as “American Laws for American Courts,” or ALAC. This law prohibits the use of any foreign law in the state’s courts, and specifically in family cases that involve marriage or parent-child relationship matters.

This bill right here could be Taxas saving grace when coming head to head with Sharia leaders who want to overrun this nation.

Representative  Jeff Leach (R-Plano) one of the bill’s co-authors thanked the governor and signed HB 45. He called the law “vitally important bill to further safeguard and protect our Constitutional rights!” In the last legislative session, Representative Leach authored a similar, yet unsuccessful ALAC measure, House Bill 562.

Lead author of the bill, Representative Dan Flynn (R-Canton) has introduced similar past legislation that also failed. In a recent press release, Flynn noted foreign law is often applied in Texas cases concerning divorce orders, child support, property settlements and sometime even, spouses enter into agreements to have foreign law applied to their disputes.

“My colleagues and I here at the Texas Legislature want to make sure Texas judges never apply foreign law in Texas courts in violation of constitutional rights and the public policy of our state,” said Flynn.

Under HB 45, Texas and U.S. law supersede all other laws. It prevents state judges from applying any foreign law because, in doing so, it infringes upon U.S. and Texas constitutional rights. The bill shields litigants in family law cases “against violations of constitutional rights and public policy in the application of foreign law” under the U.S. and Texas Constitutions, federal and judicial precedent, the Texas Family Code, and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, among other protections.

HB 45 makes no mention of any particular foreign nation, religion, or cultural practice but clarifies that “foreign law” means a rule, law, or code from a jurisdiction outside of the United States and it shall not override U.S and Texas law or their respective constitutions. It specifies that a “foreign judgment” means a ruling from a court, tribunal, or administrative adjudicator outside U.S. states and territories. The bill underscores that, in the event of any legal conflicts, “federal or state law prevails.”

In a January 2015 report it was noted that an Islamic tribunal using Sharia law operated in Dallas. Dr. Taher El-badawi, one of four attorneys who called themselves “judges” and not arbitrators, claimed the tribunal and its decisions were “voluntary.” El-badawi said the tribunal operated under Sharia as a form of “non-binding dispute resolution” in civil disputes in family and business cases but also admitted that when in conflict between Sharia and Texas law, “we follow Sharia law.”

I think it is about time the rest of the 50 states hop on the bandwagon. Foreign law should never be allowed on our beautiful motherland!!

    ISLAM WAS BANNED FROM THE USA IN 1952 but the MSM doesn’t want you to know that, nor do they respect US law.
    The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization and nationality for the United States. That Act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular found in Chapter 2, Section 212, is the prohibition of entry in to the US if the alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by force, violence or by other unconstitutional means.”
    This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States but this law is being ignored by the White House.
    Islamic immigration to the United States would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam which is antithetical to the United States government, the Constitution and to the Republic.
    All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government.
    Now the politically correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the United States because Islam is a ‘religion.’
    Whether it is a ‘religion’ is immaterial because the law states that aliens who are affiliated with any organization that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited.
