78. Where it leads
April 25, 2003
The Ashcroft Raids
John Aschroft's round-up of Muslim immigrants will no doubt go down in the history books as the Ashcroft Raids, alongside the notorious Palmer Raids of the early 1920s.
Ashcroft has cast a vast net, only to catch a tiny few. He has forced roughly 130,000 Muslim male immigrants to register with the federal government. Of those, he has found only 11 suspected terrorists, according to The New York Times. That's less than .01 percent, if you don't have your calculator humming right now.
The selection of Muslim immigrants is discriminatory on its face.
The idea that the real terrorists would willingly turn themselves in is baffling.

Federal authorities raided the homes and workplaces of many immigrants all under the basis of preventing terrorism. Since these new policies have been implemented more than one year has passed, and thousands have been detained and deported, but only four have been arrested upon connection to terrorism. The overwhelming majority of immigrants were detained, as time would show, for no other reason than they were Muslim and held citizenship in a Muslim country.

Despite President George W. Bush's repeated vows in support of American Muslims, and his reminders that the faith of Islam is not to blame for the September 11 attacks, Islamic institutions and individuals are increasingly being targeted in law enforcement actions.

105 STAT. 44
PUBLIC LAW 102-14-MAR. 20,1991
Public Law 102-14
102d Congress
Joint Resolution
Mar. 20. 1991

To designate March 26. 1991, as "Education Day. U. S. A."

Whereas Congress recognizes the historical tradition of ethical values and principles which are the basis of civilized society and upon which our, great Nation was founded;
Whereas these ethical values and principles have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization, when they were known as the Seven Noahide Laws;
Whereas without thes ethical values and principles the edifice of civilization stands in serious peril of returning to chaos;
Whereas society is profoundly concerned with the recent weakening of these principles that has resulted in crises that beleaguer and threaten the fabric of civilized society;
Whereas the justified preoccupation with these crises must not let the citizens of this Nation lose sight of their responsibility to transmit these historical ethical values from our distinguished past to the generations of the future;

The 7 Noahide Laws are /

The Law is Only a Minimum

The Children of Noah are the Gentiles, comprising the seventy nations of the world. They are commanded concerning the Seven Universal Laws, also known as the Seven Laws of the Children of Noah or the Seven Noahide Laws.

THESE are the laws that John Ashcroft is upholding.
