After nationalizing the issue and defeating the plan–Secure America Now was created to protect these values from future attacks.
Born in grassroots and matured on the internet, we are now a nationwide army of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, conservatives and liberals who share a common concern about our security and our liberty. We know the stakes and we won’t back down.

CAIR said it has witnessed an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims and members of other minority groups since the election of Donald Trump as president.
In a March 2017 Christianity Today article titled “Does the United States Belong on Persecution Lists?” Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra wrote:
Many American evangelicals welcomed President Donald Trump’s draft executive order to strengthen religious exemptions in federal laws and programs, even though it would have fallen short of protecting Christian business owners like bakers, florists, and photographers.
Stoking their increasing concerns: high-profile lawsuitsfiledagainst those who refuse to provide their services for same-sex weddings; the Obamacare requirement of institutions to provide contraception coverage; and proposed legislation in California that all schools must obey anti-discrimination regulations or lose funding.
International Christian Concern even included the United States in its religious freedom Hall of Shame list for the first time in 2016, citing “constant attacks in the media” and believers being “marginalized through the law.”
With the ISIS caliphate gone it appears that groups like CAIR are playing the victim card with no evidence of oppression. These two political satire videos, however, are ringing true especially the Islamic State of France promo.
