When the whole premise of your failed party is based on myths and lies, this is what you do, make stuff up and then write legislation for the nonexistent issues created out of whole cloth in order to pervert the cause of freedom. There is no Muslim ban, just as there is no man-made global warming — and yet whole industries, NGOs, national and international organizations, et al exist for the emperor’s new clothes.
Dems introduce bill to repeal Trump ‘Muslim ban’
By Rachel Frazin. The Hill, April 10, 2019:
Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.) and Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) on Wednesday introduced legislation to end President Trump’s ban on travelers to the United States from five Muslim-majority countries.
The legislation — called the National Origin-Based Antidiscrimination for Nonimmigrants (NO BAN) Act — “repeals the three versions of President Trump’s Muslim ban, strengthens the Immigration and Nationality Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of religion, and restores the separation of powers by limiting overly broad executive authority to issue future travel bans,” its sponsors said in a statement.
They added that the measure is supported by over 90 members of Congress and hundreds of civil rights, faith, national security and community organizations and private companies.
“I ran on a promise to end the President’s hateful Muslim ban,” Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, wrote on Twitter. “No one should be denied basic rights because of their religion, race or national origin. #NoBanAct.”
Coons said on MSNBC “Morning Joe” on Wednesday that the legislation “would prevent this president or a future president from imposing a similar religiously based ban on folks coming into this country, narrowing his powers.”
Trump and the White House argue the travel ban is not a Muslim ban. It prevents travelers from Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen from entering the U.S., and the administration argues it was necessary to protect national security.
Trump’s third executive order issuing the ban, which the White House argued was imposed for national security purposes, was upheld in a 5-4 ruling by the Supreme Court last summer.
