Dear Mr. Killion,
Thank you for contacting me regarding the influence of Sharia Law inside the United States . I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution provides for the separation of church and state: Congress can ”make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” This amendment ensures that no particular religion can be sanctioned by the U.S. government or the laws it creates, and that religions may operate freely without government interference. While Sharia law is currently being used in multiple countries across the world, it has no authority within the United States of America.
Thank you again for contacting me to share your thoughts on this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance.
United States Senator
