Overturn the Muslim Ban

On April 10, 2019, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) and Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) introduced the National Origin-Based Antidiscrimination for Nonimmigrants Act (NO BAN Act, HR 2214/S 1123), a historic civil rights bill that would repeal the Muslim Ban and prevent similar bans in the future.  The NO BAN Act would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) by outlawing discrimination in the entry of immigrants or nonimmigrants based on religion. President Trump has used the legal framework justifying the Muslim ban to implement a ban on asylum seekers (currently blocked by the courts). Congress must send the message that blanket bans are not acceptable.
