Law Firms Refusing to Represent Marriage??

At a time when law firms are representing big tobacco and even corporate terrorist connections, those same firms are shying away from any notion of representing marriage, according to http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/12/us/the-case-against-gay-marriage-top-law-firms-wont-touch-it.html?mabReward=R2&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&region=CColumn&module=Recommendation&src=rechp&WT.nav=RecEngine&_r=0

The Federalist Society at Regent University School of Law, however, is at the forefront of the marriage debate, and recently welcomed Amicus Brief drafter John Eastman.  To find out why the Supreme Court should rule in favor of state marriage regulations see http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2462093.

Tebow: Fresh Face for NFL; Anderson: Fresh Face for Family Restoration

Just as the Philadelphia Eagles have today signed the NFL's newest quarterback in Tim Tebow,

 

Both men represent fresh faces for each of their respective missions, and both men understand that men and women were designed for each other.  That original design is why state's generally endorse and work to strengthen marriage - which in turn brings about family restoration.

Immigrating Families and Children - A Best Interests of the Child Problem of Executive Action??

Immigration of families to the United States is one of the two key aspects of legal immigration, with the goal of the US government being to reunify families whenever possible.  Under this legal process, family strength and stability and the best interests of children are the objective – or in two words: Family Restoration. 

When children are left behind by parents who are deported, their best interests are a great challenge to meet.  Addressing that problem and finding its solutions are outlined in “Are We There Yet? Immigration Reform to Protect the Best Interests of Children.  

Over the past year President Obama has taken sweeping executive action to bypass avenues of legal immigration, many of which have already resulted in not providing for the best interests of children – a legal requirement in the US whenever a child is involved.  Today a federal appeals court will hear oral arguments about whether to keep or rescind a hold on the President’s recent executive actions on immigration.  Watch the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal video on Will Obama's Immigration Actions Remain on Hold?  to find out more about the hold placed on those actions by a federal district court in Texas. 

Immigration to benefit families ought to provide for family restoration in the best interests of children.
