Kansas doesn’t need ban on foreign law

With little public debate, and despite the lack of any threat whatsoever, the Kansas House voted 122-2 for a bill last week to make the state safe from Shariah law and any “foreign law, legal code or system” at odds with the U.S. and Kansas constitutions. “We do have cultures now coming into our country that define that their law is the supreme law of the land,” argued co-sponsoring state Rep. Peggy Mast, R-Emporia. “It is in direct conflict with our constitution. They’re actually declaring in other nations that they should set up their own court system to be able to operate under their own law.” The bill hasn’t been handled by the Senate. It shouldn’t be.
