Pelosi questioned by Progressive for holding up Muslim ban bill

Just as House Democrats press forward with their impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, and complain that Senate Republican leadership is not putting up bills to a vote in that chamber, it appears as if Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding up the NO Ban Act, a bill that is co-sponsored by 204 House Democrats.

The NO BAN Act was penned to roll back President’s Donald Trump “Muslim Ban” where he temporarily suspended visas to Muslims from  IranIraqLibyaSomaliaSudanSyria, and Yemen, all countries with extensive radical Islamic activity at the time.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D), the progressive firebrand member of “The Squad,’ is questioning why leadership has not put the measure to a vote, adding that the bill to  counter the “racist policies of this Administration” doesn’t look like it “will be voted out of the House.”

President Trump and House Republicans have labeled House Democrats that “Do nothing Democrats” for focusing on impeachment and not passing bipartisan legislation.

The summary of the bill reads as follows:

This bill imposes limitations on the President’s authority to suspend or restrict aliens from entering the United States and terminates certain presidential actions implementing such restrictions. It also prohibits religious discrimination in various immigration-related decisions, such as whether to issue an immigrant or non-immigrant visa, with certain exceptions.

The President may temporarily restrict the entry of any aliens or class of aliens after the Department of State determines that the restriction would address specific acts that threaten U.S. interests such as security or public safety.

The bill also imposes limitations on such restrictions, such as requiring the President, State Department, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide specific evidence of a need for the restriction, and to narrowly tailor the restriction to meet a compelling government interest.

Before imposing a restriction, the President, State Department, and DHS shall consult with Congress. The State Department and DHS shall report to Congress about the restriction within 48 hours of the restriction’s imposition, with regular updates. If such reports are not made, the restriction shall immediately terminate.
