EVEN though I disagree with the recent congressional hearings about radical Islam hosted Congressman King, a remedy can be found.
I do not believe the IRA was or is a terrorist organization due to past British oppressive practices. However, according to standing federal law called the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, it is considered such an organization. So are other organizations around the world that are subject to immediate deportations.
My remedy is to provide an amendment to the rigorous 1996 law which provides for immediate deportations of those committing terrorist crimes in this nation against the United States here or abroad. Perhaps Congressman King can take the lead on this greatly needed effort.
