House votes to repeal Trump administration's controversial travel ban”

"There are today millions of Americans who, because of the Muslim ban, are separated from families and loved ones parents who can't be reunited, families who can't be reunited, grandparents who are missing out on life events", said Farhana Khera, executive director of Muslim Advocates, a group concurring in stance with the bill. Will Hurd and Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick.

The White House noted its opposition to the bill in March, saying in a statement that undoing the travel ban "would harm the national security of the United States" and that the ban has been "central to the Administration's ongoing efforts to safeguard the American people against the spread of COVID-19".

The Trump administration introduced its original ban in 2017, barring visitors from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia.

According to two people familiar with his reaction, Trump was fuming over Esper's carefully worded memo that did not mention the flag by name, but effectively banned it from being flown on military installations by not naming it. His move drew immediate criticism from Democratic officials.

President Trump issued a memorandum Tuesday that aims to exclude undocumented immigrants from influencing congressional apportionment determined by the 2020 Census. He made the pledge in remarks to a summit focused on Muslim voter turnout.

During floor debate, Andy Biggs, of Arizona, said Democrats' used a "strawman argument" about religious discrimination to create a bill that restricts presidential authority.
