Protect the Rule of Law
Co-Sponsor H.R. 735 Universal Security of American Values Act of 2017 or the USA Values Act of 2017
Original Co-Sponsors: Jamie Raskin (MD-8)
I invite you to join me as a co-sponsor of H.R. 735, Universal Security of American Values Act of 2017 or the USA Values Act of 2017, a bill which prohibits the enforcement of any executive order which violates or undermines the laws of our Nation.
In the current tumultuous political climate, it is vital to reinforce our dedication to legal principles.
This bill prohibits the enforcement of executive orders which would be in violation of existing law. It is important to protect the rule of law and our constitution. Fourth Amendment due process and Fourteenth Amendment protections of citizenship rights
underpin our Nation’s laws. These constitutional principles create the core of our legal system and serve as the basis for legislation ranging from the Immigration and Nationality Act to laws that protect civil liberties, privacy rights, and human rights.
By supporting this bill, you are taking a stand and declaring that you will protect the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States.
The Constitution embodies the fundamental laws and principles by which the United States is governed. In such a Nation of laws, not of men, no person, including the President of the United States, has the power to violate the Constitution of the United States.
It is imperative that we prevent the enforcement of any executive orders which would be in direct violation of an existing executive order, public law, or fully executed regulatory agency process. We must protect the principles of legal process and the rule
of law on which this Nation was founded.
To become a co-sponsor of H.R. 735, please contact Isabela Belchoir of my staff at Isabela.Belchoir@mail.house.gov or at (202) 225-3816.
Very truly yours,
Sheila Jackson Lee
