This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2017.
ISIS is the single greatest threat to international peace and security. They commit genocide against Christians, attack our allies, and seek to destroy us here at home. The ACLJ has offered concrete and ascertainable goals to defeat this jihadist threat, and this year many have been implemented with great success.
Over the past two years, the ACLJ has issued a multifaceted comprehensive plan for stopping ISIS and their genocide against Christians. We called for in-region safe zones for refugees fleeing the horrors of radical Islamic terrorism, a refugee and immigration pause to better implement extensive and reliable vetting to protect the homeland, an international collation to expand our military efforts and take the fight to the enemy, and a new focus in the fight against global terrorism that prioritizes defeating and destroying the enemy.
In the last year, every one of those recommendations has been adopted. After eight years of inaction and mincing words we now have decisive action. The current Administration is working with nations in the Middle East to secure safe zones for refugees, they have instituted a refugee pause and extreme vetting procedures, have called ISIS by name for what they are, radical Islamic terrorists, and implemented a military first strategy, backed by an international coalition, to defeat the enemy.
Moreover, after a year of obstructionist and bases lawsuits, the Supreme Court has finally allowed the travel ban to go into full effect as these cases continue on appeal. We have defended this lawful ban in court from Day One. We will not stop fighting until the U.S. is no longer vulnerable to jihadist infiltrators from terrorist hotbeds.
These constitutional policies have seen great success. ISIS’s capital in Raqqa has fallen and our nation is more secure today than ever before.
Yet, there is still much to do. The ACLJ continues to advocate for effective national security policy and defend the President’s constitutional actions against Obama holdovers and an activist liberal judiciary.
Join us as we continue to insist that the United States lead the international community to stop the genocide and protect Christians while defeating ISIS and all forms of radical Islamic terrorism. With your support, we can help defeat the enemy, protect our liberties, and keep our nation safe.
