Pass legislation to protect Idaho from acts of terrorism

Letter to the Editor

Senator Bart Davis, Idaho Falls, is the Republican Majority Leader in the Senate in the State of Idaho. Since 2001, he has also been a member of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL); known as The Uniform Law Commission. This commission is a certified United Nations Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).

With the approval of this United Nations NGO and the U.S. State Department, the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) was created and used to integrate The Hague Treaty of 2007 into law via state legislation. Idaho Senate Bill 1067 was passed in 2015 only after the legislature had to be called back into extra session and only after the federal government threatened to withhold $30 million from Idaho if it not passed. Similar events happened in other states.  In other words, the United Nations NGO that Senator Davis is part of helped force the states to pass legislation that, in effect, means the U.S. and all states are subject to international law under this treaty.

Now it appears Senator Davis’ position on this U.N. committee is preventing a vote on proposed legislation such as American Laws for American Courts, Andy’s Law, and Rachel’s Law that would help protect Idahoans from the spread of Sharia law in Idaho.  Members of Idaho ACT for America and attorneys from the Center for Security Policy and the Public Policy Alliance have reviewed the proposed legislation with Senator Davis in an effort to bring such legislation to a vote, but no action has been taken.

We are experiencing an increasing number of refugees in our state through the Refugee Resettlement Program and our potential for more problems increases almost daily. It is time for the state legislature to take steps to pass legislation to protect the citizens of Idaho from potential acts of terrorism and from being subjected to any foreign laws—we need to do this with or without the approval of Senator Davis.

I encourage all Idahoans to e-mail us at to join in the fight to protect your sons and daughters from the ravages of Sharia law.
