The lawyer in this article and the article itself mischaracterize the laws passed in Tennessee, Louisiana, Arizona and Kansas. These “American Laws for American Courts” bills are NOT blanket bans on foreign law. What they actually SAY is that courts in those states cannot apply a foreign law IF the application of that foreign law would result in the violation of someone’s fundamental constitutional rights. If there is no violation of fundamental constitutional rights, American Laws for American Courts does not apply.

Ask yourself, why is this Shariah-promoting lawyer so worked up about laws designed to protect fundamental constitutional rights? Could it be that Shariah inherently violates the fundamental constitutional rights that Americans hold dear? Should US courts be applying foreign laws in ways that violate constitutional rights? Would YOU want a judge applying a foreign law in a case YOU’RE involved in when that foreign law would violate YOUR rights?
