ACT! for America Issues & Legislation

Following is a partial listing of issues ACT! for America is concerned about.

FBI discrimination against Christians and Jews who apply to be Arabic translators.

The existence of Islamic paramilitary camps operating on American soil.

Radical Muslims posing as "refugees" and gaining entrance to the United States under the Humanitarian Refugee Act.

The need for First Amendment protection for journalists who report on militant Islamic activities.

Increasing pro-Islamist and anti-American and anti-Israeli bias in high school and college courses and textbooks.

The growing number of Madrassas (Islamic schools) proliferating in the United States, schools that frequently teach hatred of Christians, Jews, Americans, and non-Muslims.

Anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-Jewish hate speech in mosques in America.

Islamic radicals posing as Hispanic immigrants to enter the United States across our southern border.

Islamic radicals teaming up with illegal immigrant gangs in illicit activities, such as drug smuggling, to provide funding for terrorist organizations.

Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Islamic charities that serve as conduits for funding of Islamic terrorist organizations.

The existence of terrorist sleeper cells in the U.S.

The need to reduce American dependence on Middle Eastern oil.

Defeating al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Purveyors of political correctnesss: How the political Left in America denies, apologizes for, or blames America for the rise in Islamic extremism and terrorism.


The "John Doe" Bill With the help of our members, earlier in 2007 Congress passed the "John Doe" bill, introduced by New Mexico Congressman Steve Pearce, which provides protection from lawsuits for individuals who report what they reasonably suspect is potential terrorist activity.

The catalyst for the bill was a lawsuit filed by the so-called "flying Imams," a group of Islamic clerics who were removed from a US Airways flight in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Imams engaged in suspicious behavior, including changing seats on the flight, asking for seat belt extenders when they didn't need them, and making loud threats against America. The Imams subsequently filed a lawsuit that included unnamed "John Doe's," the people who reported the suspicious behavior.

This lawsuit illustrates a growing trend by Muslims and Muslim organizations to use legal action (litagation jihad) to intimidate people from speaking out against Islamic extremism.
