House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refuses to accept a ruling from the Supreme Court and revealed that the Democratic-controlled House will vote on a bill to repeal President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Trump ordered the travel ban to counter the arrival in America of individuals from the world’s terrorist havens, especially in the Middle East, Latin America, and parts of North Africa.
Eurasia Review reported that the Supreme Court ruled that the president had the legal authority to operate the travel ban after weeks of Democrats accusing the Trump administration of racism and unfairness. According to Pelosi, the House Judiciary Committee will propose and fight for her party’s bill dubbed “The National Origin-Based Antidiscrimination for Nonimmigrants” or “NO BAN Act,” which was penned by Representative Judy Chu, Pelosi’s fellow Democrat from California.

“House Democrats continue to stand opposed to President Trump’s cruel, un-American travel ban in all of its iterations,” Pelosi said in a statement, adding that the bill will “prohibit religious discrimination in our immigration system and limit the President’s ability to impose such biased and bigoted restrictions.”
Former police lieutenant Mark Franin shared his thoughts: “Her recent statements show us that Pelosi is willing to allow criminals, terrorists and sexual predators entry into the United States even if these immigrants are a threat to citizens. And she doesn’t care if they kill or injure Americans.”
Pelosi’s announcement comes days after the Trump administration revealed it’s considering adding 7 additional counties to the travel ban: Belarus, Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania.
Administration officials argued that we need travel restrictions for national security. On the other hand, at one congressional hearing during the Obama administration, FBI Director James Comey admitted “there is no realistic way for the feds to vet aliens, especially criminal aliens who possess aliases galore,” as reported by Eurasia Review.
