Support H.R. 973

Support H.R. 973.  This is a simple, short bill designed to protect Americans from being forced under laws which we did not enact, but were enacted by foreign powers or foreign peoples.  The motivation for this bill is primarily that the sponsors do not want judges to use Sharia law, but this bill would apply to any foreign law which judges might use to subvert the Constitution or the will of the People of the United States.  We are sovereign nation.  If you agree, contact your congressman and ask for their support!
