The House passed the NO BAN Act Wednesday, limiting a president’s ability to impose discriminatory entry bans like the Muslim travel ban ordered by President Trump in 2017. This is Indiana Congressmember André Carson.
Rep. André Carson: “We knew that this was never about keeping America safe. It was all about enshrining Islamophobia and xenophobia as the law of the land. Though President Biden lifted these bans, our bills will ensure history does not repeat itself in this way again.”
The House also passed legislation ensuring U.S. citizens and residents who are detained at ports of entry have access to legal counsel.
