H.R.204 – American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2019 = DUMPING THE UN

HR 204, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2019, was reintroduced by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), the current ranking member on the House Committee on Homeland Security, this month and was referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, but don’t expect it to just pass with ease, especially with anti-American Islamist Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on the committee.

The legislation would repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, United States Environment Program Participation Act of 1973 and the United Nations Headquarters Agreement Act.
